AmeriCares delivers medical aid to Malawi

AmeriCares recently delivered emergency medical aid to Malawi in response to an urgent plea for help from President Joyce Banda.

The first shipment, carrying $400,000 worth of antibiotics, intravenous fluids, cardiac medicines and diabetes medications, left the aid organization’s Stamford warehouse Jan. 9 destined for Lilongwe. The medicine will be delivered to the Ministry of Health for use in government-run hospitals all across the country. Two additional shipments are planned in the coming weeks.
