Over 150 moms, and two hundred kids, showed up to greet us under a tree at Matete, Malawi yesterday. We were especially touched by this young mother who had the double task of feeding and carrying adorable little twins around. She and her friends walk long distances every month, even in the rain, to get their babies weighed and immunized and then wait their turn sitting on the ground to under a tree. Most carry babies weighing 15 to 20 pounds --- she carries double that weight.
This is one of the areas that desperately needs a shelter with a secure metal roof for a meeting place. Definitely a potential site for HealthEd Connect to provide a modest building for our Sinkhani health workers. If you're interested in helping out let us know. The need is obviously there and crying out..
