Healthcare

Orant’s Healthcare Program is the oldest of our programs. We have a static health clinic on our campus in Kasese and a mobile clinic that travels daily to see patients in hard to reach rural areas. We see tens of thousands of patients a year for a variety of ailments, by far the most common of which is malaria. More than half of our patients are under five. The vast majority of our patients are unable to access other healthcare as it is often too far away or lacks adequate medicine.

Healthcare in Malawi is woefully inadequate. Under-funding and under-staffing often make basic care unavailable to most Malawians. Hospitals often have unsanitary conditions and regularly run out of basic medicines like malaria treatment. 

Our rural Health Center and Mobile Outreach Clinic fill the gap. We employ an excellent team of highly trained Malawian staff that includes three clinical officers, eight nurses, and thirteen patient care attendants. Our fully stocked pharmacy provides some of the only access to high-quality medicine for miles around.  We deliver 40 or more babies a month in our maternity ward and provide excellent prenatal care for up to 100 mothers at any given time. Our ambulance drivers transport serious cases to higher levels of care, creating a critical lifeline to healthcare for thousands of people.
