Drama Skits Prove Effective, as Patients Line Up for Clinic
November and December were incredibly exciting to see Prevention efforts switch into full gear. An Nkhoma-based Drama Group did an outstanding job playing out the role of a family who neglected to watch their young child around a fire and go through the steps of visiting an herbalist doctor and finally reaching a Malawian doctor to get the proper treatment the child needed. The group was hugely entertaining and reached over 2000 rural Malawians surrounding the Nkhoma area.
In reward we witnessed numerous persons with burn contractures and epileptics who saught out treatment for their seizures to avoid a potential burn injury.
This program is extremely important to teach kids and parents about the dangers of fire and what do in case of an emergency. With a donation of $125 you can provide a rural village with this vital information!
