Our Vision and Mission
We envision Malawi with Healthy communities across that enjoy productive life. We support alleviation of human suffering from disease, hunger, poverty and social injustice especially among women and children by creating and implementing participatory and sustainable solutions.
Theory of Change
FOCCAD exists to improve the health and livelihoods of vulnerable women, children, and young adults in hard-to-reach communities. We do this by bridging the transport and logistics gap between health facilities and communities in last-mile hard-to-reach areas. We provide emergency transport and logistical support from communities to health facilities, so that women, children, and young adults can access quality, unmet healthcare services. We also provide last-mile mobile outreach clinics to the most distant communities.
