Supporting a pediatric nurse

MCI has been asked to help sponsor a much needed nursing position in the pediatric unit.  Without adequate nursing, critically ill children cannot receive medications, IV fluids, or the attention they need.  The employment cost for a quality, well educated nurse for a year is $11,000.  Please click donate now if you wish to contribute towards this effort.

Dzama Orphan Care School

Malawi Children's Initiative is partnering with UNC to help build a new schoolhouse for the Dzama Orphan Care School.  Located about 15 miles outside of Lilongwe, Dzama village has particularly been hit hard by the AIDS crisis, leaving many orphaned children. Currently, over 1,300 children are supported by Dzama Orphan Care. We’re proposing to build a new school block for the children to grant the children an education up to the 6th grade.
