[1] Whipple's Disease

                Whipple's Disease is a very rare, fatal bacteriological infection that can be successfully treated with modern antibiotics. It is a model of the advances of medical science in the 20th Century.

In 1907 George Hoyt Whipple described a previously unknown disease in the John Hopkins Hospital Bulletin. He had autopsied a 36 year-old medical missionary who had lost a five-year battle with the disease. Symptoms had included arthritic swellings that were episodic, migratory, and asymmetrical. In addition the deceased had experienced fever, diarrhea, weight loss, hypertension and sever anemia. The autopsy revealed that there were foamy macrophages in the joints, aortic valves, and prominent deposits in the small intestines and lymph nodes. Whipple also found numerous rod shaped bacteria in the extracts of tissue.

The intestinal deposits suggested to Whipple that the disease was a mal-absorption disease and should be called "intestinal lipodystrophy." Other observers would later call it "Whipple's Disease."

Whipple, born at Ashland, New Hampshire, in 1878, the son and grandson of physicians, was just beginning his career as a pathologist. He would later be the dean of the School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Rochester and an important medical researcher In 1934 Whipple shared the Noble Prize for Medicine for his research accomplishments.

In the late 1940s techniques were found for diagnosing the disease pre-mortem. The small intestines could be biopsied and samples stained with acid-Schiff (PAS) to get a definitive diagnosis.

                In 1952 antibiotics began to be used aggressively to treat Whipple's Disease patients. Until then Whipple's Disease had advanced uniformly to death. Success with a regime of penicillin and streptomycin for a year or longer added to the hypothesis that it was caused by an infectious bacteria.  By 1961 the electron microscope provided further evidence when studies revealed bacillary bodies inside of the membrane of tissues.

                In 1985 a study of eighty-eight patients with Whipple's Disease found that around 40% suffered a relapse. This led to the use of a course of antibiotics capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier.

                Researchers in 1991 and 1992 were able to isolate the Whipple bacillus. The name Tropheryma whippelii was adopted. In 2000 Tropheryma whippelii  was successfully cultured.

                Whipple's Disease is rare with only about 800 cases reported since it was first identified. The symptoms patients present are often inconsistent. For example about 80% have symptoms of diarrhea, while the rest do not.  Oddly almost all patients have been middle aged white males in North America and Europe, and many farmers.

                Advances in staining, antibiotics, statistical analysis, the electron microscope and other innovations have greatly reduced the likelihood of death from this disease and illustrated the success of science in this aspect of life.

[2] Marion Medical Mission

The Marion Medical Mission (MMM) is headquartered at 1412 Shawnee Drive in Marion, Illinois (62959). Legally it is an American non-profit (US tax code 501c3) organization. All designated donations, including those designated for administrative cost, go to their assigned use. All undesignated funds go to work in Africa. All of its volunteers pay all of their own travel costs to Africa as well as their own support while engaged in ministry there.

                The current President of MMM, Tom Logan, is also its founder. He worked with Albert Schweitzer, Martin Luther King, and others prior to graduating from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago (Presbyterian). He leads a Board of Directors with vice-presidents and other officers.

Spiritually MMM is an ecumenical Christian ministry with team members, belonging to Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and other denominations. It seeks to show Christian love and unity through several kinds of ministries.

                Begun in 1985 MMM has conducted medical missions in Ghana, Republic of Congo (Zaire) and Malawi. Since 1990 it has focused much of its work in Malawi in cooperation with the Synod of Livingstonia of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian.

MMM gives short-term medical care to people who are suffering and lack modern medical care. It works closely with the Embangweni Hospital in Malawi.

Part of MMM’s strategic mission is the promotion of self-help projects that can be sustained in the rural village without outside assistance. These self-help projects are designed to improve rural village life. Among the self-help projects designed to improve rural village life are those involved with digging shallow wells in rural villages, where the only source of water is a water hole shared with animals.

A shallow well, dug to the water table in the dry season, is lined in the bottom with a layer of gravel. A well wall is built by cementing burnt brick into place. The well’s top is a cement cover, through the top of which PVC pipe is inserted. A technologically appropriate hand pump device is used to bring water to the service. Pump replacement parts are available and affordable to the village. The cement, PVC pipe, and well pump materials are paid for by donors. The current cost is $300 per well to supply a village with clean water free from the frequent diseases and avoidable deaths that comes from using water holes.

Since 1990 MMM has built over 5000 shallow wells in Malawi, Tanzania, and Zambia. These shallow wells are providing clean water to over a million and a quarter people. Wells are built in villages without asking if they are Christian, Muslim or animist.

MMM also builds needed schools. With the Synod of Livingstonia it opened the only school for deaf children in northern Malawi. In 1992 it opened the Chizimya Full Primary School. It has provided funding for teacher homes, school buildings and libraries. It has aided the opening and operation of seven other schools including the Kasoba area Christian Muslim School, and the Mziza Mission Secondary School.

[3] Malawi

Area: 45,747 square miles (118,484 square kilometers)

Population: 12,000,000 (2004 estimated)

Capital: Lilongwe

Highest Point: Sapitwa (Mount Mlanje), 9,843 feet (3,002 meters)

Lowest Point: xx feet (37 meters), junction of the Shire River and the boundary with Mozambique

GDP per capita: $220.00

Primary Natural Resources: almost entirely agricultural and hydropower with some limestone, marble, undeveloped deposits of uranium, coal and bauxite, diamonds, and other precious stones.

Malawi is a small landlocked country in central southeastern Africa. It is about the size of Louisiana or somewhat larger that Cuba. Like Cuba, Malawi is long and narrow. It stretches north to south for about 520 miles (835 kilometers). It is only 50 to 100 miles (80 to 160 kilometers) wide.

Malawi's borders Mozambique on the east, south and west. Its western border is with Zambia and with Tanzania in the north. Most of Malawi's eastern border is Lake Nyasa (called Lake Malawi in Malawi) opposite Mozambique in the south and Tanzania in the north.

                The East African Rift Valley cuts through the central African plateau for the whole length of Malawi from south to north. The Rift Valley creates Malawi's two most prominent features: Lake Nyasa and the adjacent plateaus.

Lake Nyasa fills much of Malawi's part of the Rift Valley. The lake's surface is about 1,500 feet (472 meters) above sea level. Its bottom is deep lying at 699 feet (213 meters) below sea level. The lake's shoreline is a flat plain with many swamps.

The Songwe River feeds Lake Nyasa in the north. The Shire River, the outlet for Lake Nyasa, flows south through Lake Malombe to join the Zambezi River as a tributary.

Plateaus cover about three-fourths of Malawi's land area. The plateaus have a varied terrain that includes plains, rounded mountains, inselbergs ("island mountains") and forests. West of Lake Nyasa is a broad plain on top of the central plateau region. It averages between 3,000 to 4,000 feet (900 to 1,200 meters) in height. The Dedza highlands on the southwestern edge of the central plateau border Mozambique.

In the north are the Chimaliro Hills and the Viphya Highlands. The north's unique Nyika plateau section reaches an elevation of about 8,000 feet (2,400 meters).

South of Lake Nyasa on the eastern side of the Shire River are the Shire Highlands. This plateau region holds Malawi's (and central Africa's) highest point, Sapitwa (Mount Mlanje).

Malawi's climate is subtropical with a rainy season (November to May), and a dry season (May to November). The dry season is much cooler than the rainy season. The highlands are much wetter and cooler than the lowlands. Rainfall in the highlands is about 90 inches (230 centimeters) a year. In the Shire River Valley the rain is about 30 inches (80 centimeters) per annum.

Temperatures in Malawi are affected by the season, altitude and by the latitude from the south to north. Temperatures are hottest in the Shire River Valley just before and after the rains. Cooler temperatures occur in the higher elevations.

Malawi's ancient volcanic soils are very fertile. This has encouraged extensive agricultural activity as the basis of the economy.

Most of the people of Malawi are Bantu speaking with English and Chichewa both designed as official languages. Since July 6, 1964 Malawi has been an independent republic.
