Good Health is the foundational piece of Africa's restoration. Healthy people can care for their families, learn new ways of caring for the land, take advantage of available education, and develop their communities to step out of poverty.
Our Community Health Evangelists care for patients assigned to them by the district hospital in their homes. Our CHEs teach about nutrition and first aid, they teach about clean water, toilets and AIDS.
Our first health goal is making sure people are introduced to Jesus. Body, soul and spirit are deeply integrated and we believe that many physical problems are the manifestation of spiritual issues. By giving people the opportunity for prayer, we believe many will never need to go up the road to the clinic.
The second step of our Healthcare goals include instruction in Growing and Eating a Nutritious and Diversified Diet. We believe that healthy people can fight off disease.
Our Current Clinic and Maternity Center Status: November 2017
We are in the final process of our clinic registration. This has been a long process, but we hope to complete all the steps and open our doors in early 2018. Certainly it has taken longer than we planned.
In the process of preparation, we've learned so much about what women suffer in childbirth in Malawi. We have stepped up our goals by breaking ground on our Labor and Delivery Rooms. Our fundraising goal for 2017 is $29,000 to complete the Maternity Center.
