This association was founded and registered in 1993 in Lucerne (Switzerland) as a non-denominational support organisation to assist the Phalombe hospital in Malawi, Africa.

In the meantime, Pro Phalombe has become one of the major donor organisations in support of the hospital and has been able to realize projects with a total value of more than 2.2 million Swiss Francs since its foundation. In addition there were donations of equipment and medications valued at several 10'000 Swiss Francs.

We do encourage you to join as a member or patron. With your support you contribute a very important part to the future of the Phalombe hospital. The elderly and the youngest patients as well as the hospital staff extend a warm thank you for every single Franc donated.
