Mzimba District Council has seen a tremendous improvement on budget transparency and dissemination as people are being made aware of district funding.
Let us honor our pregnant women and our children in accessing quality health care and their health rights, as we commemorate International Human Rights today 10th December.
Malawi has the highest preterm birth rate in the world. Every year, 120,200 babies are born too soon, and 5,300 of these die due to preterm birth complications. But two women from Mzimba District did not want their babies to be among those 5,300 babies.
We believe that every woman has a right to survive childbirth, just as every newborn child has a right to a mother. It is for these reasons that MamaYe Malawi joins the rest of the world today, 25th October 2016, in commemorating Global Day of Action for the Right to Health.
The sweat and tired legs during this year’s Mzimba Mother’s Day Fun Run helped raise K77 million worth of essential supplies and equipment.
