Cold weather without adequate clothing increases risks of pneumonia to children.  In response to this Belmont and Malawi United Methodist churches took measures to reduce exposure to cold and care for these vulnerable children at Mbera Health center and Makuta village, in Balaka district.

“The cold weather increases the neonatal and child mortality and poses a high health risk to our children. We care for an increased number of children suffering from exposure to cold, hypothermia and respiratory conditions like Asthma and pneumonia. Your donation has just come at the right time. Thanks to the church for thinking about us”, said the Sister in Charge.

One of the beneficiaries of the clothes in Makuta village was the Frank family. It is one of the poorest families in the community.
