Patterson’s blog: Keeping healthy and springing into the future with advice from health-care professionals
Pupils learnt about keeping healthy and fit with some clear advice from health care professionals this month.
Nurses and Clinicians from Koche Catholic Hospital visited MOET to check on their general health. They also distributed medicine as well as giving out iron and folic acid to the girls.
The nurses and clinicians regularly visit and check pupils as a way of ensuring that the learners are physically healthy. They also help with any mental health or issues that pupils may be experiencing.
They also provided advice to the pupils on the ways to prevent diseases like HIV, AIDS and cholera.
The nurses are very skilled at finding the right way to communicate with each student, according to their age, their interests, and their character or personality. What these classes do is make the pupils feel more empowered to take care of their own health and discuss issues that they may be troubling them.
At Moet, we are helping with some of the more marginalised communities in Africa. These health workers on the front line of change- and we’re the charity determined to help them succeed. Will you help us with our mission to to educate the future of Malawi about keeping healthy?
