Malawi Facts

Facts about Malawi
Point England did you know that the population of Malawi is 16,777,547 also that the president is a woman her name is Joyce Hilda Banda the first ever female to become president. The country is also nicknamed The Warm Heart of Africa. Its capital is Lilongwe, which is also Malawi's largest city.

The Children
For every 100.000 births in Malawi, 808 mothers die of diseases such as HIV and malaria pregnancy during and childbirth.  The symptoms of malaria include fever, chills, headache and muscle pain. To get malaria you would have to get bitten by an infected mosquito which can lead to death. The  symbol for solidarity with HIV-positive people and those living with AIDS is a red ribbon
