During a recent visit to Malawi, members of the Ammalife team were able to hand over stethoscopes and blood pressure monitors to Thomson, Edward and three of their colleagues from MAOCO (the professional organisation for Obstetric Clinical Officers supported by Ammalife). Their existing stethoscopes had literally fallen apart so Ammalife asked doctors in the UK to club together so that we could buy five new, tough and reliable steths. A huge thank you to our donors.

We were also able to send five blood pressure and vital signs monitors specially developed for use in low-resource settings. They don’t need batteries which are often impossible to source. It’s hard to over emphasise how important this diagnostic kit is – hundreds, if not thousands, of mothers and their babies will be safer because of it.
