Friends of Sick Children in Malawi - News
Refurbishment of our paediatric nursery ward is complete.
This is our ward for babies under 6 months admitted with any one of a variety of serious illnesses e.g. pneumonia. This very busy ward was very cramped which resulted in high rates of cross infection. The refurbished ward is now bigger, brighter and airier!
Dr Laura Newberry (who can just be seen in the background—right) is ‘queen’ of this area.
Thanks to the generosity of the following donors, 7 new vital signs monitors with accessories and stands have been purchased and have just arrived at the hospital.
Review of 2013
At Friends of Sick Children in Malawi, both here and over in Africa, we greatly appreciate all the support we receive each year – support that comes from a great and growing variety of people, organisations and places, and can range from goodwill and encouragement, through knitting and other goods, to financial donations, large and small.
Here are some of the big achievements of 2013 thanks to you, our supporters:
- Building a families’ and guardians’ shelter in the grounds, and making the area safer underfoot and generally improving for everyone the external environment within the grounds around the wards.
