HIV/AIDs is a major issue in Malawi and Mrs Soko of the Primary Health Care (PHC) Department at Livingstonia Hospital is in the forefront of the battle. Every day she see the effects of HIV/AIDs as she provides practical care for families and, particularly, orphaned children. Here she is teaching a ‘Gogo’ (old person) how to make up baby milk for babies that have recently come into her care. PHC wil then give ongoing and appropriate support to this family using donated clothing, goods and financial support.
Dr Ross Muir, a gynaecologist usually known as Dr Ross, has just begun a placement with World Exchange at Ekwendeni Hospital. Here he joyfully receives some specialist sugical instruments. He thanks those who made ot possible for him to get the instruments so quickly, and John Challis, who took them out to Ekwendeni in his luggage on his recent trip to Malawi.
