Comfort is Everything ~ £4
Chitenji is a type of colourful, patterned cotton used for everything in Malawi! At Open Arms it is used to comfort new babies, keeping them close to their ‘mother’ and providing comfort.
A baby snug on a woman’s back, held there by a chitenje, is a familiar sight in Malawi. It means that her baby is safe and close, even if the mother needs to walk around and use her hands.
A chitenji costs £4 and is especially important for hospital visits, where it will be used to carry a child and provide comfort throughout their stay.
