3 African Charities in Malawi
At Orant Charities Africa, we are honored to work alongside other non-profits equally committed to serving the Malawian people. Malawi is a kind, hospitable, and spiritual country. Its poverty doesn’t overshadow its beauty nor its potential. We’ve compiled a list of 3 African charities who, like us, want the best for Malawi.
Our friends at Wandikweza are bringing healthcare to the people. Like Orant, they work closely with the Malawian government and other partners to strengthen primary healthcare. They deliver healthcare services to rural communities with mobile outreach clinics and nurses on bikes. They also train Community Health Workers to implement health promotion, disease prevention, and community-based development. Each year, their team reaches more people than the last. In 2021 alone, they served over 86,000 Malawians.
