Stacey Neilson, a local Escondido resident, just returned from her service with the Peace Corps in Malawi, sub-Saharan Africa. She worked and lived in the rural village of Chikwina as a Community Health Advisor at the health center. She loved every minute of her two-year service in Africa but her work in the village is not yet finished.
The current Chikwina Health Center is inadequate to meet the medical needs of the community. There is a lack of patient confidentiality and no privacy between genders in the patient ward. The center is too small to accommodate the growing population of Chikwina and it is currently without access to running water and electricity.
To address these issues, the community came together to build a new maternity ward, complete with electricity and running water. Construction is already well underway but Stacey and her Malawian community need your support to finish it! Help bring this much needed resource to the village of Chikwina!
