EVENT: Strides in Solidarity Boston
EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2017
On Sunday, April 9th, PIH groups around Boston will be working as one to host Strides in Solidarity, a walk-a-thon to benefit and spread awareness for those who are critically ill but without access to care. The goal of this year’s Strides is to provide funds for the expansion of outpatient facilities in Neno, Malawi.
Mawali is a nation ravaged by HIV, medieval child and maternal mortality rates, and above all: poverty. The only regional hospital in this area was established by PIH and the Mawalian Ministry of Health in 2007 and has been able to provide care to 150,000 individuals. With this expansion we will be able to further and wider to benefit Malawi’s population of 16 million.
