CURRENT EVENTS

Kazomba Building

Sinkhani Center very smallThe long awaited Sinkhani Center in Kazomba, Malawi is nearing completion and festivity planning is underway. A HealthEd Connect team will travel to Malawi to share in the grand-opening ribbon-cutting ceremonies on Saturday, August 24. The Sinkhani are inviting government officials, tribal chiefs, local dignitaries, and health professionals along with media representatives to the big event.

In 2018, the Sinkhani monitored 38,279 children under the age of five to get them get on the Road to Health. With over 47% of the children in Malawi stunted, the monitoring, nutrition intervention, and teaching of mothers is critical. Many of these activities occur outside with scales hung from a tree or under a thatch-roofed shelter. The new building at Kasomba, erected on land donated by the tribal chiefs, will provide a permanent facility where services can be expanded to include immunizations, prenatal care, and activities for orphans.

The first activity in the new Sinkhani Center? A training of 27 new Sinkhani to expand the program and reach even more people in need.

Mirriam, "The Boss"OUR BOSS

Mirriam Is Who We Work For!

Mirriam had only to gaze up at us with her big brown eyes and we knew our lives would never be the same.  We met her when she was two years old, HIV positive, and facing an uncertain future.  She’s not unlike the other 12 million AIDS orphans in SubSahara Africa.

Mirriam’s now our ‘boss’.   If you’d like to meet her, click on ‘The Boss’ and see if you’d like to work for her too.

OUR MISSION

Helping People Is What We Do!

HealthEd Connect builds on a solid foundation of 20 years of experience with volunteer Community Health Workers who are directly involved with the families and special needs in their villages. Many of these villages are now facing incredible challenges as the number of orphaned children, primarily due to HIV/AIDS, has grown dramatically and the typical surviving caregiver is an aging grandmother who has lost both her husband and children. Going forward, HealthEd Connect will remain flexible and adaptive by connecting villagers and their leaders to expanding visions of possibilities, targeted training, and access to resources.
