According to statistics, 3 of every 10 children die before they reach 5 years of age and 30% of the remaining number die before they reach the age of 10.

In Malawi,

53% of the population is 

under the age of 18

With 3 operating rooms and a 50-bed ward, Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care is the first and only pediatric intensive care unit in the country.  This facility is already making a significant difference in the lives of Malawian children.

PFP has partnered with

Mercy James Centre,

the first pediatric ICU in the country

We are committed to training nurses and doctors who are now better prepared to care for critically ill children before and after surgery, anticipate complications, and provide appropriate treatment.
