Day Eight: Hope Crisis Nursery

Stacy, Elaine, Claire and others visited Ministry of Hope Crisis Nursery and donated 20 baby blankets. Opened in Mzuzu in 2006 by Ministry of Hope, the crisis nursery provides temporary care for babies born with AIDS or babies who have been abandoned or are in other life threatening situations. With a capacity to care for approximately eight infants, the children are cared for during their crisis period while arrangements are made to place them with relatives or adoptive families.

The rest of the day was spend packing and preparing to leave Malawi via Lilongwe.
