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.
The day is an annual global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of hand washing with soap and water as an easy, effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.
It’s the International Day of the Girl. Much as there is a lot of rhetoric, I have come to value these special days since issues are brought into the spotlight, new data revealed, strategies elaborated and the girls, if they are at the right place at the right time, they get to know about global and national trends that are set to impact their lives.
