Beit CURE Malawi says it has for the past three weeks screened 1200 children with orthopaedic disabilities in Mangochi during the recent mobile clinic services the organisation held in the district.

The hospital says out of the figure,   316 children require surgery.
Currently, the team of nurses deployed by the hospital in various health centres across the district is at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge sharing successes and challenges incurred during the exercise. 
Meanwhile, the Director of Health and  Social Services for Mangochi District Hospital, Dr Henry Chibowa, is overwhelmed with the outcome and has since hailed the Beit CURE team for the service.
"It is pleasing to note that Beit CURE has reached out to areas where its tenacity is hard to reach even by the District Health Office (DHO)," said Dr Chibowa.
Executive Director for Beit CURE Malawi, Elly Chemey, has promised to work in collaboration with Mangochi DHO until the children receive the required surgery in Blantyre. 
Chemey explained that the organisation plans to double its efforts so that it reaches out to as many kids as it can. 
Chemey said: "We have noted  that a lot of children in the country are suffering so we will continue reaching out to their areas."
He added that Beit CURE Malawi exists to heal the sick and proclaim the Kingdom of God by supporting disabled children through various mechanisms such as mobile clinics so that they realise their full potential in life.
