Covid-19 pandemic has hit  Malawi hard and for a poor country with fragile economy and overstretched healthcare system the situation is getting worse by the day. Doctors, Nurses, other medics and all other front-line healthcare workers are being exposed to the dangers because of lack of proper protective gear and other equipment. The rate of virus contractions by front line workers is alarming. A sick healthcare service will simply not deliver the desperately needed care for everybody. Malawi Health Care Support UK (MAHECAS), a UK based registered charity is fundraising for sourcing equipment to be provided to the hardworking healthcare workers and will assist the health services in Malawi cope with or alleviate the effects of Covid-19 pandemic. In Malawi we are directly working with the Chief of Health Services for Ministry of Health, Society of Medical Doctors (SMD), and District Health Offices (DHOs) in Karonga, Nchinji and Mwanza, and also the Covid-19 Unit Response Team at Queens in Blantyre and will also be in touch with many more DHOs through the Chief of Health Services and SMD. All the equipment to be bought will be the one asked by the front-line workers themselves and preferentially sourced locally. Some of the items to be sourced are: N95 Face Masks, 3Ply Face Masks, Face Shields, Face Goggles, Surgical Gowns, Disposable Overalls, Medical Isolation Overalls and Infrared Thermometers. In Malawi the distribution and management of the funds and equipment will be in the hands of Society of Medical Doctors (SMD) with the full knowledge of the Chief of Health Services.

MAHECAS projects in Malawi are coordinated by the Chief of Health Services. For more information about MAHECAS and both completed and current projects and other activities please visit Mahecas website @
