Probably the first of its kind in Malawi. Silver Strikers Football Club organised a football match against retired players at its stadium, for mothers and babies. The game ended 3-1 in favour of the TNM Champions League holders. However, the retired side did not make it easy for them.
MamaYe Malawi was privileged to attend the Presidential Running Mates Debate where tough questions were asked. The different political parties have made commitments to how they are going to save the lives of mothers and babies. Do their responses bring hope or create more worry. Find out!
MamaYe Malawi celebrates International Day of Rural Women! Rural women play a critical role in the rural economies of both developed and developing countries through their activities to agriculture and rural enterprises which contribute to local and global economies. But they are disadvantaged in accessing emergency obstetric and neonatal care, because of geography, local support, autonomy, culture, finance, and ergonomics. This contributes to higher maternal mortality rates.
Today we can celebrate multiparty politics, freedom of speech and free primary school education just to mention a few. But for me, after everything that I have learnt in the last year, one of the biggest achievements we need to make noise about is the increase in the number of mothers and babies that have survived childbirth.
