Our Involvement in Malawi
CRUSA also provided support for textbooks, reference materials, and helps to ensure that medical students will continue to have rotations through Ekwendeni.
CRUSA raises funds for medications and medical supplies for Embangweni Mission Hospital and surrounding clinics.
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 well as to have a vehicle that can deliver staff and patients to the hospital as needed.
