To combat the Cholera epidemic in Malawi, Water Aid and the Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) joined forces to make a lasting impact on communities affected by the disease. With a donation worth MWK 24 Million from Water Aid, CHAM can secure essential supplies necessary for preventing and controlling the spread of Cholera.
During the handover ceremony, the Head of Programs from Water Aid, Peter Phiri, emphasized the importance of addressing Cholera as a WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) issue. Despite limited resources, Water Aid was able to support its partners, including CHAM, in their efforts to combat Cholera.
The Director of Health Programs at CHAM, Elled Mwenyekonde, was overjoyed at the donation from Water Aid and expressed his gratitude with enthusiasm. “This timely contribution of essential supplies, including chlorine, buckets, soap, cotton rolls, methylated spirits, gloves, mops, and gumboots, will make a huge impact in our efforts to control the spread of Cholera. We are so grateful for the support of Water Aid and the positive difference this will make in the lives of those we serve,” he explained.
The partnership between Water Aid and CHAM serves as a prime example of the impact that can be made when organizations work together. The donation of essential supplies not only helps to prevent the spread of Cholera but also demonstrates the commitment of both organizations to improving health and well-being in the communities they serve.
The collaboration between Water Aid and CHAM has been a resounding success, resulting in a donation that will have a significant impact on the fight against Cholera in Malawi. The partnership between the two organizations serves as a model, highlighting the importance of collaboration in making a positive difference in the fight against Cholera.
