  • 42%42%

As Covid-19 reaches Africa it is with great sadness we see the total confirmed cases exceeding 10,000.  To date there have only been 8 “confirmed” cases in Malawi. But we know this number is likely to grow.

In the face of this crisis DATUM FOUNDATION continue to support our friends in the communities of Malawi.  We are currently providing support through donations for the purchase of soap and buckets to allow better access to handwashing in the village of Chisala. We have also issued a range of health care information to be distributed by poster and mobile telephone.

But we need to do more!

DATUM FOUNDATION is proud to be partnering Masks4malawi in this effort. We have already donated £3000, equivalent of 30,000 masks, to help the communities in Northern Malawi. And we are using our extensive system of friends and contacts to establish the manufacture and the distribution of masks and soap to local populations. Can you help us to do more?

DATUM FOUNDATION needs to raise £10,000 to help us provide:

Health care information

We will be setting up a health care information campaign. This will use printed posters in English and the local language, Chichewa, and messages circulated by mobile phone to encourage regular handwashing and the wearing of masks while out in public. This is particularly important in the more remote rural communities.

Soap and clean water

To help purchase bulk supplies of soap and water buckets to distribute to local communities

Face masks

To help purchase fabrics and employ local tailors to make face masks. These will be made on a design supplied by America’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention. (CDC). Donate now and we can help to reduce the death toll across Malawi

£10 will help provide 50 bars of soap or 100 masks

£50 will provide face masks for 50 people

£100 will help to print and distribute XXX posters

Simply visit our donations page to pledge your support: Donate Now

Together we can help thousands of people by the simple acts of health education, encouraging handwashing, and supplying protective face masks.
