Medical Assistance & Education
Creative Global Relief looks for ways to partner with medical professionals and organizations to provide education, training and medical supplies. During our previous trips to Malawi, we have seen how a rural clinic nurse provides the only medical attention for as many as 40 births per month in her area. The birthing mothers give birth on a twin-size metal bed with a 2-inch plastic covered mattress. The plastic sheet must be washed and returned for reuse by the birthing mother. A kerosene autoclave is used
Malaria is the primary killer of children under age five. HIV/AIDS infects over 10% of the population. These are two of the numerous medical issues that plague the country.
Every evening, during our evangelistic meetings, we deliver PowerPoint presentations to the people. Health topics include malaria, smoking, HIV/Aids, high blood pressure, etc.
CGR is thankful for our relationships with medical organizations such as Physicians for Peace and Eastern Virginia Medical School and always welcomes new networking opportunities.
