This is the second time that the foundation is reviving the pact after it hit snags last year after the charity wrote the clinic about the discontinuation of the deal.

However, acting executing director of Joyce Banda Foundation (JBF) Flora Kaluwire said it has been the wish of the former Malawi president Joyce Banda, founder of the foundation, to continue with safe motherhood campaign.

“I have been sent here to sign MOU with Achikondi Clinic here in Area 23, what it means is that JBF will pay all the bills for women who will be delivering here,” said Kaluwire.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, Managing Director of Achikondi Clinic Charity Salima commended Joyce Banda for the deal.

Salima urged more women to come and deliver at the clinic in order to save more lives.

During the ceremony, Kaluwire named a baby who was born on the same day of the ceremony, Joyce, named after the former president Joyce Banda.

Achikondi Clinic was officially opened in 2014 by the minister of health Dr Jean Kalirani and the clinic started operating at a small scale in 2008.

Arkm can you do what JBFI done rather commenting nonsense. Why cant you learn to say thank you to good things that others have done. Have you heard that all those that go to this Clinic have many children or the Foundation is targeting any woman who comes to this clinic. 99.99% supported Madam Joice Banda and the whole Foundation , keep it up !!!

Malawi politicians and local organizations I believe promote laziness and irresponsibility. I mean having a child is something that should be planned for. Husband and wife MUST sit down before they have any child and discuss how many children they want to raise. This will depend on their inci as well. Even Jesus said that one cannot start building a tower before he calculates the cost. most people in Malawi view marriage as a child making business, that is why you will find a very poor family have eleven malnourished children who can’t even go to school coz of poverty.… Read more »

This is what aGetu cannot do instead of saving thelives of fellow women, she is busy stealing NAC money killing millions of women who are mothers in the process. What a shame Gertrude with your daft foolish husband Matanyula Pitala. Kuba basi is what Peter is good at ndikugonana ndiamuna anzake. Fotseki.

This is why Malawi will not develop, you want to have a child but can not plan the costs of having the child? You want someone to pay for the birth? This is subsidizing unsafe sex! More babies next year and with them, more H…..
