And we're off!
Hailing from North Carolina, Chicago, New Orleans, and Florida, the AHA team is en route to Malawi!
We have a packed schedule ahead of us, from dental work at Kabudula Hospital and Dzaleka Refugee Camp, to dozens of surgical cases at Kabudula Hospital, to trauma care, staff training, and on-call nights at Kamuzu Central Hospital. We'll work alongside the hard-working medical staff at all of these health care centers and more to decrease the backlog of surgical cases, ease the suffering of many patients, and train the next generation of Malawian health professionals. On top of that, this year we'll have supplemental power and electricity to ensure that we can give our patients the best care possible in limited resource settings.
Thanks to generous donations from our many supporters, we beat our goal, raising $11, 211!
$4,656 was raised by our Dental team and $5,690 by our Medical team. Zikomo Kwambili (thank you) to all of our supporters!
