The world annually observes Africa Day on 25th May, acknowledging the solidarity among African countries. Africa Day was established in 1963, commemorating the formation of the African Union that acknowledges our rich African heritage. The theme for 2019 Africa Day commemoration is “Healthy Lifestyle Prolongs Life”. This theme is to emphasize the significant relationship between unhealthy lifestyle and premature mortality. Health is Wealth.
During the year as we celebrate 25 Years of existence in Malawi, we have encouraged healthy living through wellness tips shared on Wellness Wednesday every fortnight. Furthermore to show solidarity of embracing the African Heritage, FINCA Malawi celebrated Africa Day on the 24th of May among all its branches.
