The Story |

Four-year-old Emma was one of the brightest lights in M’nima Village, until she lost her brief battle with malaria on March 31, 2017.  That morning, Emma joined the 1 in 13 children in Malawi who die before their 5th birthday — most from illness that is both preventable and treatable.

If Emma’s mother had been able to get her to a health clinic with malaria medication, her life could have been saved for less than $10.

The Problem

Three miles of dirt road. In M’nima Village, the nearest clinic is 3 miles away, over rough dirt roads. No one in the village owns a vehicle. For sick children, the trek is nearly impossible.

The Solution

In 2019, we opened Emma’s House! Our Village Health Clinic brings health treatment to children the most vulnerable children, focusing on treatment of malaria and malnutrition-related illness. It stands adjacent to Hope Preschool #1, which Emma attended, just steps from her home.

Emma’s House treats an average 240 children every month – at no charge.

$10 = Malaria + Malnutrition treatment for one child.
