We have started the Countdown to Register Grace Clinic. Our goal is to be ready by January 2019, and we are counting down fast!
We started our pursuit of providing comprehensive healthcare in our community by teaching community health classes at the Grace Center and in the villages surrounding the center. Over the years, we’ve seen an improvement in dysentery rates, child mortality, wounds and anemia. These are great strides to take and we will not stop teaching, in fact, one of our primary goals is to step up our community health education program!
Another primary goal of Grace Clinic is to provide AAA healthcare: Available, Appropriate and Adequate.
AVAILABLE: Currently the 15,000 people immediately surrounding the Grace Center do not have access to healthcare. We anticipate even more people coming to our clinic than those who live in the villages connected to the GC.
APPROPRIATE: One of the biggest problems with healthcare in Malawi is poor diagnosis of health problems and inappropriate treatment of those problems.
ADEQUATE: Malawi, among African nations, has striven to establish rural clinics throughout the country, regretfully, most of these clinics (including the one closest to the GC) rarely have medications and are grossly understaffed.
We want Appropriate and Adequate care Available in our community.
Will you join us in the Countdown to Register Grace Clinic?
We are making a registry of all the things we need to complete our registration, first, as a Rural Clinic (in January 2019) and secondly, as a Health Center (as soon as possible). A Rural Clinic will allow us to treat patients like your family doctor does here in the US and refer patients to the district hospital for further care. A Health Center will allow us to open our maternity center and provide Prenatal, Delivery and Postnatal care for expectant mothers. (We have plans beyond this, but let’s get these two checked off the agenda first!)

We want to wire the funds for these items by the end of October so we can stick with our Countdown to Register Grace Clinic! #countdowntoregistergraceclinic
