Mimosa Clinic was opened in 1973 as a children clinic and later a mobile clinic was introduced in the year 1977. Located in the southern part of Malawi (Central Africa) in Mulanje district 15 KM along Mulanje Mulaza road Mimosa Clinic has a catchment area population of 29,071 according to National Statistic Office 2018 report. Besides its long time establishment the clinic has no proper facilities and enough space for operation. For quiet a long time it has been a challenge for the health workers to save lives of the unborn babies and lives of their mothers too since the clinic had no maternity wing for expectant pregnant women. Some were given birth/delivering in Tea bushes and some in toilets around the clinic. That means if there is any complication then both the mother and child are gone or one survive by grace. The risk of mortality deaths is too high no wonder globally Malawi is number on the list. It is for this reason that the community managed to request funds from Sukambizi Association Trust for the construction of maternity wing which is now under construction as you can see on the picture.
However there is a need to construct a Postnatal Shelter as well as Guardian Shelter in support of the maternity wing which is now under construction. Time frame of the whole project is six (6) months from March 2021 to August 2021. The whole project of the required two (2) shelters costs 70,000.00 USD. We are therefore requesting your financial support to the community of Mulanje District especially those around Mimosa Clinic to help them complete the construction of Postnatal Shelter as well as Guardian Shelter in support of maternity wing project which is now underway. Your donation will save lives and bring hope to the community. Your donation will reduce the rate of mortality deaths in Malawi.
