Statement on Mangochi District Hospital Fire

Seed Global HealthBlog, Malawi, News, Press Releases

Our hearts and thoughts are with our colleagues, the patients, and the community affected by today’s fire at Mangochi District Hospital in Mangochi, Malawi.

Our friends at Mangochi have been our partners and our inspiration as we’ve worked side-by-side, and while we are thankful our visiting faculty at Mangochi are safe, our hearts break for this nightmare our local colleagues have had to endure.

Through our Malawi country director, we will be on the ready to support their recovery in any way feasible. Increasing access to quality maternal and pediatric care has been a hallmark of Mangochi District Hospital, and we will support our friends and counterparts at Mangochi as they continue to provide the best care possible, even in the face of this tragedy.
