Introducing Mulanje Mission Hospital

Mulanje Mission Hospital works together with a local government hospital to serve a population of 550,000 people in the Mulanje district of south east Malawi.

Mulanje Mission was established towards the end of the 19th century, the initial health facility on the present site operated as a maternity clinic. Nowadays the 220-bedded hospital provides a full range of medical, surgical and Paediatric services. Together with the adjacent College of Nursing, 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).

ERC-MMH Christmas Appeal

This year has been a very strange one for us all and unfortunately, we had to cancel the annual MMH Benefit Concert that was to take place in March 2020. Nevertheless, Phase one work goes on at the hospital and renovation of the Children’s Ward walkways has begun. The work will improve hygiene, ensure proper separation of patients, preventing increasingly lethal multi-drug resistant and other infections.  

Improving Intensive Care for Children at Mulanje Mission Hospital

In the second phase the Intensive Care Unit will be redesigned to utilize space more effectively. With between 2,500 and 3,000 deliveries per year, it is essential that the hospital is well equipped to save the lives of vulnerable young children. For the older children, the intensive care unit will be important in the treatment of conditions such as severe malaria, respiratory infections, and accidents. Introducing solar power and improving the resuscitation area will ensure that oxygen can be provided to all children who need it. To carry out these plans the hospital must raise around €18,000. The staff plan to host a sponsored golf tournament in Mulanje to raise money and we expect that Wilde Ganzen will provide sponsorship for the project.

Christmas Eve Online Concert in Aid of the 2020 Project

On Christmas Eve the ERC will hold an online carols by candlelight service led by the choir. You are encouraged to join in the singing at home. The offering will be dedicated to: Improving Intensive Care for Children at Mulanje Mission Hospital. This is your opportunity to give the hospital a Christmas present by making a donation.

Fundraising and Sponsorship

To carry out these plans the hospital must raise around €18,000. The hospital staff plan to host a sponsored golf tournament in Mulanje to raise money. The English Reformed Church has also pledged to contribute towards the project in several ways, and we hope that Wilde Ganzen will also take part. Over the last years, with support from the English Reformed Church and Wilde Ganzen, various service improvements and additions to the hospital have been made. These included the upgrading of the laboratory, antenatal ward, installation of a digital X-ray machine and the implementation of High Dependency care in a specialized unit.
