Birthday Offering Expands Surgical Services at Malawi HospitalMay 5, 2021
The Birthday Offering of Presbyterian Women celebrates our history of generous giving. Launched in 1922, the Birthday Offering has become an annual tradition. It has funded over 200 major mission projects that continue to impact people in the United States and around the world. While projects and donation amounts have changed over the almost 100 years, Presbyterian Women’s commitment to improving the lives of women and children has not changed.
The third project funded in 2021 is Nkhoma Mission Hospital in Nkhoma, Malawi. This Mission Hospital offers affordable, accessible healthcare services for all in the area, inspired by the love of Jesus Christ. The grant of $129,145 will build an obstetrics and gynecology-specific operating room next to the existing prenatal and maternity wards. This new theater will help decrease delays and reduce maternal deaths caused by having to move patients a significant distance across the hospital grounds. This theater expansion will aid in the hospital’s goals of becoming more self-sustainable by expanding surgical services that are offered and living into its vision of being a leader in quality Christian health care and training in Malawi.
