Our Stories from the field

Meet Jabili Kamanga, 70 years of age , a husband, Father of 4 and a grandfather of 6 children. He comes from Village Headman Chunga in Katengeza. He is a member of Katengeza Pre Cooperative. He is one of the members who have improved household livelihood through farming and VSL. He has been a farmer for quite a long time but he couldn’t have enough food for his household due to lack of technical support in his farming.
Access to health care remains a burden in rural Malawi with pregnant and lactating women walking more than 50KM to the nearest health facility. FOCCADs approach to health bridges the transport and logistics gap between communities and health facilities through door to door and outreach health services and provision of emergency transport services to the most vulnerable and needy clients to health facilities.
Tiyanjane Dausi, a standard 7 and 14-year-old Leaner at St Paul’s Primary School in Nkhotakota District in Malawi is a practical example of work in progress in ensuring girls achieve their dreams in society. The journey to supporting girl child education and growth is taking good shape in Malawi through FOCCAD programing on comprehensive sexuality education and child corner.

Fundraising Drive
Join our fundraising drive to improve our last mile health programing in ensuring quality SRHR is provided to women, children and young adults. We actively seek individual, cooperate and foundation support to: procure medical van (ambulance) to take health to the last mile in hard to reach communities, recruit and train more community health workers, procure drugs for our community clinical visits. One woman living with HIV is supported with transport and logistics over 8-10 times and conduct over 60 visits to graduate with an HIV negative child, our CHWs conducts over 50 visits to one woman. We are looking for tricycles to ease mobility and take more mothers to clinics.
