Medical care in Malawi is provided by the government in the form of local clinics and hospitals. There are also a few private hospitals scattered around the country. The doctor to patient ratio is one of the lowest in the world, with only about 300 doctors for 18 million residents. Complicating matters is the lack of transportation to a health facility. If one is very ill and unable to pay a bicycle taxi or walk the many miles to a clinic or hospital, the necessary care may not be obtained.
To facilitate care for the very sick and poor, Demonstrate Love supports Common Ground Ministries, a local ambulance ministry in the Mulanje District. Please consider a donation to fund the fuel and maintenance of this ministry.
