We are changing the lives of children in Malawi.
Thousands of children in Malawi suffer from debilitating conditions such as clubfoot, hip dysplasia, cleft lip and palate, hydrocephalus, burn contractures and spine deformities.
There are devastating consequences for these children if they are not treated.
Surgeons at The Beit CURE International Hospital in Blantyre treat many disadvantaged children with disabilities, literally transforming their lives and those of their families.
The AMECA Wing, opened in May 2011, was built as a totally sustainable income-producing private elective surgical ward. This innovative venture has two important outcomes:
In keeping with AMECA’s charitable objectives, we also built much-needed training offices for medical staff; these facilities are used for medical conferences, therefore producing a further income stream for children’s treatment.
Finally, we built a small coffee bar, the revenue from which further aids funding of children’s surgery.
The AMECA Trust is very proud of its first build project. Within days of opening, The AMECA Wing was being used for elective surgical cases. The charity is especially proud to have employed the services of so many local people in Malawi and to have completed this project on time and within budget.
