Introducing Mulanje Mission Hospital
The congregation of the English Reformed Church have an historical attachment to the Mulanje Mission Hospital (MMH), located at the foot of the Mulanje Mountain in southern Malawi. The hospital provides primary health care to 75,000 people in 72 villages.
Established at the end of the 19th century as a maternity clinic, MMH has developed considerably over the years. Nowadays the 220 bed hospital provides a comprehensive range of medical services. MMH has become well known for its high standards of care, under the governance of Blantyre Synod of the Central Church of Africa Presbyterian (CCAP).
Support & Donations
Our commitment includes providing a monthly donation of € 1,000 to MMH. This money is used for medical supplies and urgent materials that are not funded by the government.

In addition to our monthly support, we hold a yearly benefit concert to raise funds for a specific project to improve conditions at the hospital. We’ve raised funds for the renovation of the Children’s ward, modernisation of the Labour ward, improvements to the Men’s ward, installing solar panels, improving water supply and sanitation, improving the antenatal ward and improving the laboratory services.
The 2015 benefit concert, which was held on Friday November 27 presented Ricky Ross – the lead singer, chief songwriter and driving force behind Deacon Blue. The proceeds of the concert went towards making essential improvement to the antenatal ward.
On December the 8th 2016 our church was packed for a Victorian Christmas Evening organised to supporting the fundraising for improving the laboratory services at the Mulanje Mission Hospital.. It was a great success and everyone got into the Christmas spirit by enjoying food and drink, shopping at the festive market stalls, and listening to seasonal music. And the master storyteller, Ashley Ramsden, gave a joyous (but scary) retelling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
More information about these and other projects can be found in the Mulanje Mission Hospital reports.
