Mothers Day Fun Run project is a Nation Publications Limited initiative hatched in 2005 to fundraise for the
acquisition of maternal and infant equipment for use in Government hospitals.
This years beneficiary of the project is Mzimba District Hospital and its surrounding health centres. In choosing a
hospital to benefit from the project, the maternal mortality rate is used and the district with the highest rating within
the chosen region is selected.
Please note that the project is executed on a rotational basis between the three regions and 2016 is a year to
fundraise for a district in the northern region of Malawi.
Data provided by Ministry of Health indicated Mzimba as the district to benefit from the project as it has one of the
highest maternal mortality in the northern region. A needs assessment carried out by the Mzimba District Health
Officer confirms the critical shortage of maternal and neo natal healthcare support in the various health facilities.
Attached is a brief description of the various partnership categories and a list of medical equipment required in in the
