The Eva Demaya Centre: Who we are and what we do
Since 2001 the Eva Demaya Centre has been working to provide proper healthcare facilities to a disadvantaged part of Malawi. We do this work in the belief that everyone everywhere has a right to a decent health service.
The Centre was created with the cooperation of groups from within the local community. A core element is the clinic, which consists of a number of buildings where Western medicine is practised. As well as the outpatients clinic there is a maternity unit, an orphan care project offering vocational training, a nursery school and also the Centre sometimes offers maize distribution in times of need. The Centre is also an important employer within the area, with a payroll of more than 60 people. Read more on this website about the work of the Eva Demaya for the inhabitants of Malawi.
