Malawi COVID-19 Response
Donating beds and mattresses
In November 2020, MAHECAS, with the support of Medstrom, a UK company, donated 1025 special COVID-19 beds and 781 mattresses to the College of Medicine (COM). We are grateful that COM has made these available to the Government of Malawi in its fight against COVID19. The financial value of the shipment was £600,000.00 which is around MK700 million.
These beds are being distributed to field hospitals by the Government in Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Zomba and Blantyre. In 2019, MAHECAS sourced and donated 600 ICU beds and 400 mattresses. We believe these are adequate to address MALAWI’s ICU needs as intimated in the Presidential Address.
Supporting our work
MAHECAS fully supports the efforts by many groups to raise resources in support of the fight against COVID19. We encourage our members to donate towards these efforts.
We also acknowledge and thank various groups that are raising funds on behalf of MAHECAS for the same cause.
