Our Involvement in Malawi
Current Projects 2015:
Embangweni and Ekwendeni:
Providing funding for supplies to be used in the hospital. CRUSA also provides support for textbooks, reference materials, and helps to insure that medical students will continue to have rotations through Ekwendeni.
Compassionate Response was originally formed in 1998 in order to provide assistance to the people of northern Malawi. The aid has been primarily for medicines and supplies for the hospital, as wells as to have a vehicle that can deliver staff and patients to the hospital as needed. We have included a link to a documentary by Salome Chasnoff entitled Brink of Suvival. The film explores health care in northern Malawi.

In the midst of the health care crisis sweeping sub-Saharan Africa, a small hospital in rural Malawi manages to serve 120,000 people, all nearly free of charge, with just one doctor.
