Corona in Malawi

Bericht van de stichting naar de directie van scholen

We hope this message finds you in good health. Here, as you probably know, we are trying hard to stay healthy and beat the Coronavirus. For us this means that we are staying at home most of the time. We only go out to do our groceries and to look after dear ones that need our help. When we are outside we apply social distancing. This means that we keep a 2 metres distance to other people. We wash our hands often during the day and cough, or sneeze in our elbow, instead of in our hands.

The schools and universities are closed. All the pupils and students are at home. Most of them are doing schoolwork at home.

We hope sincerely that the virus will not spread aggressively in Malawi. But when it does, please take it very seriously. Make sure to apply social distancing, keep two metres distance to other people. Be prepared to close the school as soon as the government makes that decision. Look for ways that the children can make some schoolwork at home. But most of all stay inside your house as much as possible.

Our prime minister asked all Dutch people to look after each other. Since you are our dear friends in Malawi, this is our way of trying to look after you. We do not want to scare you, but hope that we can help you with our experiences at this moment.

Let’s stay in touch, stay healthy,
Yours sincerely,

Mirjam, Corry, Sandra, Wil and Marjan.

Dear student,

We hope this message finds you in good health. Here, as you probably know, we are trying hard to stay healthy and beat the Coronavirus. For us this means that we are staying at home most of the time.

We hope sincerely that the virus will not spread aggressively in Malawi. But when it does, please take it very seriously. Make sure to apply social distancing, keep two metres distance to other people. Look for ways to continue your studies at home. But most of all stay inside your house as much as possible and look after your personal hygiene.

Our prime minister asked all Dutch people to look after each other. Since you are one of ‘our’ students in Malawi, this is our way of trying to look after you. We do not want to scare you, but hope that we can help you with our experiences at this moment. You can count on the support of MiM-foundation for the payment of your college fees.

Stay healthy,
Yours sincerely,

Thank you very much Mirjam and the board of Mim for keeping us always in your heart and more especially now.

In Malawi as you might have heard all the schools are closed, meetings and any other gathering has been limited to 100 people. People are encouraged to keep social distance and wash hands regularly.

You are Mirjam that with the mind set of the people not everybody is adhering to these measures.

In the villages it's hard already to find daily basic needs so people can not spare the little they have to buy sanitizers or other detergents like soap I see that as a major challenge. I addition I feel they still need more sensitization because there is a lot speculating on social media which is misleading among others generally people are believing that the pandemic can't come to Malawi.

Another major challenge is funeral ceremony. People can be restricted for weddings and other ceremonies but for funeral its very hard.

Am still looking for a better way to sensitize our support groups I feel they are more vulnerable with their immune system which is weekend already. My thoughts were to show them how to make simple handwashing facilities and provide some soap.

We keep you in our prayers and pray for us too that if it is true that we don't have cases as is claimed now then that should be maintained otherwise I can't imagine the disaster that can hit the county.

Remain Blessed and God bless and protect you always.

Sr. Tereza
