2014 update - good news

Jill DeVore

All of the Medicine for Mali programs-Clean water, Micro-finance loans, Teacher training, are operating this year in Mali. In addition Public Health programs of  Matrone training , malaria prevention, and immunizations are on-going this year. Our village volunteers have been trained and work hard on these things every month in their own villages. Dave and Drake U pharmacist John Rovers went to Mali in Feb, 2014. They got 4 new clean water wells installed in even more remote villages. Our villagers told them how much they appreciated the midwife coming to train their village matrones.

MFM hired a  Malian doctor to hold a medical clinic in the Health Center. He was pleasantly surprised by the lack of diarrhea in our area. He had expected to see a lot of this. But, thanks to the clean water in these villages , he did not have patients will this ailment.

The rebellion in the north of Mali has not had a direct effect on our villages as they are far away from this trouble. We are thankful for that.

Ebola has not been found in Mali, as of this writing.

Columbus International Programs (CIP) has given  Medicine for Mali $1000 for text books for our area of 8,000 people. In these times of difficulty in Mali, this concrete offer of aid for the children will demonstrate Americans concern for Malians. Thank you so much, CIP!
