2013 MFM work continues

Good news: all of Medicine for Mali’s is continuing this year, even though the American team could not make it’s yearly visit this winter. For example:

4 new villages (3500 people) will be getting clean water wells this year.

The Malian doctor who held MFM med clinics this year was surprised by the lack of stomach and intestinal aliments in the villagers. He said the clean water wells were the reason, and he thanked MFM for this.

New Micro-finance loans went out to 350 people in 8 villages in 2013.

School-teacher trainings are being held in the villages’ schools. All MFM trained teachers have passed their evaluations. Scholarship students are receiving their money to go to high school in the capital.

A Midwife is coming for monthly prenatal visits to assist and teach the village matrons. Many more women are coming for prenatal visits now!

Public Health trainings and refresher courses are occurring now.

Monthly Immunizations sessions in all villages are occurring. Malaria prevention talks and weighing of children for malnutrition are continuing.


TTN, Altrusa collect school supplies.

These two energetic groups in Columbus, Ohio, have collected school supplies to encourage girls to stay in school and do well on tests. These school supplies will be given to the top 3 girl test takers on 3 tests.

Work in Mali Continues

Despite the political turmoil in Mali, most Medicine for Mali programs are occurring in the impoverished, remote area of 8,000 individuals that we serve. Sadly,American volunteers are not going to Mali in 2013. However, Medicine for Mali’s Director of Operations in Mali, Dr. Bagayoko and his able colleagues, direct our programs all year and will continue to do so in 2013. The actions of the rebels and Islamists are mainly in the remote northern part of the country, far from our area. Banks and ministries are functioning. Therefore; microfinance loans, clean water projects, scholarships, teacher training,birth attendant training, malaria prevention, immunizations, malnourishment prevention: all these life giving programs continue daily in the Medicine for Mali area with your help. Thank you very much!
