What We Do

Christian Aid in Malawi

Christian Aid has been working in Malawi for almost 20 years. Our projects have focused mainly on resilience, disaster risk response and health, including maternal and child health and HIV treatment and prevention.

We support vulnerable communities to improve health and build resilience by participating in and influencing development.

With our partners, we contribute to Christian Aid’s essential purpose by empowering poor and marginalised communities and individuals to find practical and sustainable ways out of poverty and to be actively involved in decisions and opportunities that affect them.

We are currently updating this page and further information will be added soon.
