Chief Sewera from Mpingu village in Lilongwe has started imposing penalties to his subjects when found neglecting and abusing donkeys or any other animal in his jurisdiction.
In Malawi, where rabies kills around 500 people each year - many of them children - rabies is a sad and scary reality. A reality which 12-year old Isaiah Mzonda was faced with.
In March 2018, a family and their sick puppy travelled through heavy rains in Malawi to a rabies vaccination drive. The puppy had bitten the family’s 12-year-old son, Isaiah Mzonda several days before and tested positive for rabies during the vaccination drive.
We are very proud to introduce Isiaha Mzonda, 13 years old and our first Young Ambassador for Rabies in Malawi.
