Maybe, like us, you have empty medicine bottles each month. Maybe, like us, you recycle them.
Here’s a better idea.
Hospitals and pharmacies in rural Malawi don’t have enough medicine bottles, so they dispense pills in small, torn pieces of paper. That makes them easy to lose. It’s also easy for small children to get their hands on them.
And, it’s an opportunity for us to do a simple kindness.
It’s easy to donate your used pill bottles to Malawi.
When you’ve got a group of containers, send them to Mali. First, remove the labels. Many labels will peel off, but some are more stubborn. You may need to soak them in hot water to remove labels. You might wash out the insides, too.
Then, box (or use a padded bag) and send them out to this wonderful place–The Malawi Project– that will send them to Malawai.
