About this cause

About our cause

The partnership we have with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi is helping colleagues bring better healthcare in one of the poorest nations on Earth. The partnership was established in 2004 to improve the health of children in Malawi. It provides a unique opportunity for our own staff. So far our partnership has raised over £100,000, which has enabled us to send 34 staff, as well as allow Malawian health professionals to come here, and provide a wide range of equipment. Almost one in five children die in Malawi before they reach their 5th birthday. Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital is government funded and provides free health care. It is the only comprehensive healthcare training institution in Malawi. The paediatric department manages a similar number of patients to ours but with only a twentieth of the staff. Tasks undertaken by our visiting staff include needs analysis, and nurse and health care assistant training. Our nurses, who have spent up to 6 months in Malawi, have benefited immensely personally and professionally. Another very successful programme is the introduction of play therapy. Eleven nurses, one clinical officer and 2 paediatric doctors have visited us from Malawi. We have supplied more than £10,000 worth of essential equipment. Malawian colleagues have found the partnership to be immensely valuable and motivating. This is not just about medical and nursing staff, as some of our major successes have shown. This is a partnership to which everyone is welcome.
