Malaria is the main epidemic disease that causes death, disease and underperformance in Africa. Especially children suffer the consequences. Data on the extent of malaria in Africa vary and are based on estimates. The figures show conclusively how big the impact of malaria on life in Africa south of the Sahara is:

  • 100-450 million clinical cases of malaria each year (WHO – 200 million in 2015)
  • Approximately 400.000 fatal cases of malaria each year (WHO 2015)
  • Every minute an African child dies of malaria
  • 1 out of 6 African children doesn’t grow older than 5
  • In addition to malnutrition, malaria is a major cause of the fact that half of all African
  • children are anaemic
  • Every school day up to 10-30% of children can be absent due to malaria
  • The cost of malaria to the economy in Africa is estimated at $ 12 billion annually

An effective and sustainable way to treat and prevent malaria would greatly improve the quality of life in Africa. That way is available!

PC Malaria

The PC Resonance for Malaria, called PC240m and produced by three European homeopathic pharmacies, has been used in Africa in thousands of cases ever since it was first prepared by Peter Chappell in 2002. This remedy has proven to be effective in treating acute malaria, chronic malaria as well as the long-term effects of malaria (e.g. epilepsy or chronic headache occurring after suffering cerebral malaria).

What are the advantages of PC Malaria:

  • Very effective even in patients who do not respond to regular drugs
  • No side effects
  • Safe for infants, pregnant women and the elderly
  • Low cost
  • Production, distribution and storage are easy
  • No therapy resistance
  • With only a short training every health professional can effectively prescribe it

And there is still a huge advantage. A resonance that heals a contagious disease may also help to build up resistance to that disease. Together with other preventive measures such as mosquito nets PC240m can therefore also be used to prevent malaria.

ARHF trains African health workers to use PC Resonances in the treatment and prevention of epidemic diseases and provides African partners with free remedies. Reducing malaria is one of the main goals ARHF has set.

What does malaria mean to a schoolchild?

In recent years ARHF has devoted itself increasingly to the prevention and treatment of malaria,

especially in children, because:

  • despite the existence of regular medication and preventive measures, this epidemic disease remains the leading cause of death in African children.
  • children are often sick monthly and have chronic anaemia.
  • the PC resonance used by us in the treatment and prevention of malaria has proved to be extremely effective

We knew from experience that once children were treated with PC Malaria that – despite repeated infection – they would be free of the disease the whole malaria season. Next we have tested the effect of giving children a regular dose of PC Malaria from the start of the malaria season as prevention.

Africa Malaria Prevention Project (AMPP)

Malaria prevention with PC240m was first tested out in DR Congo in 2009. At the Land of Hope School in Kiliba (South Kivu) 600 children were given regular doses of PC Malaria as prophylaxis. Within a few months the school reported there were no more cases of malaria at the school at all.

In Uvira, just south of Kiliba, PC Malaria was dispensed in the community by a church dispensary. A few months later the local Red Cross Hospital complained that they were seeing 95% less malaria cases and had difficulty paying their nurses, as malaria patient care was the main source of income.

In Mzuzu (Malawi 2012) a nursery that took care of 300 children lost 5 children each year because of malaria. The year that they started giving PC Malaria to all children they did not lose a single child. Based on the reported results one of the ARHF volunteers, Ruthe Schoder-Ehri (nurse and homeopath from the US) started the AFRICA MALARIA PREVENTION PROJECT (AMPP) in Malawi in 2013. ARHF appointed the Amma4Africa Manager in Malawi, Joseph Msumba to manage the project. In the malaria season of 2013/2014 he and his team of volunteers reached more than 6,000 children and adults, and in the season of 2014/2015 more than 27,000. Schools report reduced absenteeism while the director of the local hospital in Chintheche reports reduced hospitalization and reduced deaths from malaria. The results inspired us to make AMPP a priority programme and to roll it out in many more countries as also to do further research into the effectiveness of malaria prevention with PC240m.

A Community Health Worker made PC240m available to all 20,000 people living in and around Chemelil (Kenya). Chemelil used to have up to 3 funerals per week because of malaria. A local clinic confirmed that for more than 6 months, nobody had died from malaria in Chemelil!

In 2014/2015 5,000 Kenyan school children received PC Malaria as prevention. The results are beyond anything we dreamed to be possible. In all participating schools absenteeism went down by 70-80%. Where normally 4-5 children would be absent in each class because of malaria, this was reduced to 0-1. One school decided to check whether the small number that still was reported sick had malaria. What they found out was that these children had typhoid or another sickness, but not malaria. We know that treating malaria with PC240m is effective in 90-100% of the cases. It is good news that prevention with PC240m is similarly effective. These results indicate that AMPP can also significantly reduce the death rate due to malaria and improve the quality of life of all Africans and help Africa prosper.

Besides seeing the outbreak of malaria drastically reduced, we have also witnessed long-term consequences of this. As absenteeism in schools has decreased dramatically as a result, learning performance improved significantly (see chart). Thus children have a healthy start in life with a view to a better future.


In several African countries ARHF works with local partners to collect data from participating schools and clinics and to publish the results. From different schools we have absenteeism rates and the results of final exams of each quarter of the year before they started AMPP and then the year after they started AMPP. The first results came in from Kenya. We found it initially hard to believe those figures. The decrease in absenteeism was so dramatic that it seemed inconceivable. These data were therefore checked by our team on the spot. They are also known in the Ministry of Education, which also controls the exams. Moreover, we get confirmation from other countries like Malawi and DR Congo where comparable results are observed.

In Kenya we have received data from several schools. Without exception positive. On Miwami Primary School for example, around 30% of the 274 children were absent in the year preceding AMPP. Within a few weeks after starting AMPP that figure dropped dramatically to stay low (see the blue line in the graph). As the data have been collected over a period of two years the improvement cannot be attributed to seasonal influences. Moreover, in this part of Kenya malaria is there the whole year and the season plays no role.

What we also expected was that children would perform better in school if they would be absent less and no longer chronically tired from anaemia. The red line in the chart shows the development of school performance. After a year AMPP, pupils on average performed 26% higher on the test conducted by the ministry of education than in the first measurement before AMPP.

Because we had gathered absenteeism rates on a weekly basis, we could see how quickly the number of absent children reduced. AMPP was started in the 4th week of the 3rd quarter. Starting in week 5 the number of sick children went down rapidly. At the end of the quarter of 11 weeks absence was only 5%. In the following full year absence stabilized at around 1%.

Healthy children performing better in school are also an investment into the future, a future with more welfare and prosperity in Africa.

Rolling out Africa Malaria Prevention Project  (AMPP) all over Africa

In 2015 over 100,000 children benefitted from AMPP. Halfway 2016 that number was already almost doubled, an increasing trend we hope to continue. With modest resources this is possible. The important thing is that Africans themselves are committed to implement and further disseminate the project. Our vision is that AMPP itself can only spread widely across Africa when this happens by and for Africans. Begun in 2013 in Malawi, by 2016 AMPP had already spread to countries like DR Congo, Kenya, Tanzania and Nigeria.

What we offer African partner organisations

  • Free training and supplies
  • Online support
  • Forms to collect data on the results

What we ask from African partner organisations

  • To make malaria prevention available to schools, nurseries and communities
  • To conscientiously execute the protocol for malaria prevention
  • To collect data on the impact of the project: absenteeism figures at schools, mean school performance, number of children hospitalised for or dying from malaria etc (we have developed forms that can be used)
  • To generate in their own community support for further expansion of AMPP
  • To regularly send us a report

Our African partners make malaria prevention available in schools and communities for only 10 cents per child. You can support them with your donation.

Aids in Africa

In the 80’s the first AIDS patients were diagnosed. Soon it was discovered that the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome was caused by a virus called HIV. With the immune system destroyed by the HIV infection, these patients lost their ability to fight other infectious diseases and ultimately died.

In Africa, HIV/AIDS spreads among men and women alike through sexual contact. There are many reasons why AIDS is affecting African people so strongly. Certain aspects of African sexual practices contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS in the heterosexual population. For example, some Africans have regular sex with more than one person; men are often away from home for long periods of time and prostitutes provide for their sexual needs; many are still ignorant about the disease and the need for safe sex; in poor areas sex is often used as a payment for services, goods or food; rape is a serious problem in many African societies and so on.

Initially ARVs (Anti-Retroviral drugs) were too expensive for Africa so only a minority of infected people were able to obtain them. Millions of diseased people did not receive any treatment at all. Death was their certain fate. In recent years the price of ARVs has come down and as a rule institutions and governments now provide ARVs for free. The majority of patients still receive no treatment (2015). With an assumed death rate of 1.1 million per year and 1.5 million new infections per year, the AIDS epidemic is still taking and affecting many lives in Africa. Despite the increasing use of ARVs, many millions more AIDS deaths are predicted in sub-Saharan Africa in the years to come. Therapy resistance is an increasing problem. Many HIV-positive- born children are no longer responding to the ARVs they have taken since their birth and are still to face an early death.

In 2001 Peter Chappell, an English homeopathic practitioner, followed a heartfelt desire to go to Africa to see what homeopathy could do for the millions of AIDS-patients who received no treatment. After taking some 70 cases of AIDS-patients in Ethiopia, he collected all their AIDS-related symptoms and tried to find a homeopathic remedy that would match the disease. To his great disappointment such a remedy appeared not to be known in homeopathy.

Peter Chappell then investigated the possibilities of making such a remedy himself. In 2002 he found a way and created a remedy for HIV/AIDS that he later called PC1. To his great joy he found that all patients who took the remedy responded very well to it. Their energy levels and appetites quickly returned to normal and their pains and lung problems subsided. They could soon return to their jobs, take care of their children, in other words resume a normal, active life.

Since 2002 PC1 has been used in several African countries by visiting homeopathic doctors who work as volunteers in health clinics as also by many African doctors, nurses and community health workers that have been trained by ARHF. Their reported results are very similar to those initially reported by Peter Chappell. In several studies the clinical observations were confirmed, namely that AIDS-patients taking PC1 recover from their AIDS-related symptoms rapidly and that the significant decrease of opportunistic infections indicates a restoration of their immune system, which is confirmed by rising CD4 counts. ARHF has trained health professionals in many African countries. Please contact ARHF for information on the best way to receive or prescribe PC1.

ARHF board members are volunteers and receive no remuneration or compensation for their services.

Peter Chappell :: Honorary President

Peter Chappell is the person behind the breakthrough that resulted in the foundation of the ARHF. On this website you can read more about the background of this new development, how he came to it and the results. Peter was previously involved as the creative driving force in putting resonance healing in the form of homeopathy on the map in around fifteen countries where previously it did not exist. His first book, ‘Emotional Healing with Homeopathy’ came from some of these experiences. In 2000, after a hug from Amma, he discovered that his burning, overwhelming, heart-felt passion was to do something about HIV/AIDS in Africa. Following that inner call he moved to Africa, a step in his life that was successful beyond expectations. It resulted in a new source of single remedies/resonances that could be effectively applied to most infectious diseases. A new era of treatment was born. About this advancement in treating epidemics Peter wrote ‘The Second Simillimum’ (2005). Joining up with Harry van der Zee, ARHF evolved into a self-supporting organisation pioneering this work in Africa and beyond. Gradually Peter and Harry started introducing this new approach in the West by integrating an individualised approach with a disease-specific approach. The work in Africa and the West is documented in the book ‘Homeopathy for Diseases’, a book on how to treat epidemics, trauma and chronic diseases (2012). In parallel with this, Peter started building an organisation to research and develop this work in the West for use in other fields like performance, and consciousness, as well as diseases which resulted in Source Medicine.

Harry van der Zee :: Chairman

Harry van der Zee, born in the Netherlands in 1953, is a doctor who has practised homeopathy since 1987. He is an international teacher and has presented seminars in many European countries as well as the USA, Canada, India, Africa and Japan. Since 1996 he is editor-in- chief of Homœopathic Links, an international journal for classical homeopathy. He has investigated the importance of the birth experience in homeopathic case-taking and published two books on the subject – ‘Miasms in Labour’ (2000) and ‘Homeopathy for Birth Trauma’ (2007). Through this work he has been able to meaningfully connect the homeopathic theory of miasms (hereditary archetypes connected to chronic diseases) with the individuation process, and thus provide a theoretical basis for understanding the role and purpose of individual and collective diseases in the process of human evolution. Since 2004 Harry has been involved in projects in Africa to enhance the homeopathic treatment of AIDS and other epidemics and in 2007 he co-founded the ARHF. Regarding a new advancement in treating epidemics, he co-edited and published Peter Chappell’s book ‘The Second Simillimum’ (2005), has written and published ‘Amma4Africa Manual’ (2009, renewed and extended edition 2014), ‘Amma4Trauma Manual’ (2013), ‘ARHF Volunteers Manual’ (2014) as well as many articles. Together with Peter Chappell he wrote ‘Homeopathy for Diseases’, a book on how to treat epidemics, trauma and chronic diseases by integrating an individualised approach with a disease-specific approach (2012). He has produced documentaries on treating AIDS, Malaria, Diabetes and Trauma due to war, genocide and rape (Africa) and natural catastrophe (Haiti). He has formed a team of researchers and designed a research protocol to further study the efficacy of PC1 for HIV/AIDS.

In June 2009 he organised the international conference ‘Homeopathy for Developing Countries’ to further improve the success of homeopathy in developing countries. In 2010, together with Christopher Johannes, he published the anthology ‘Homeopathy and Mental Health Care’.

Harry has trained health professionals in many African countries that now independently treat epidemics, trauma and chronic diseases using the PC Resonances provided to them by ARHF.

Corrie Hiwat :: Secretary

Corrie Hiwat, born in the Netherlands in 1950, has been practising as a homeopathic therapist since 1987. She was initially trained as a nurse and a teacher in adult education. She has taught homeopathy in several countries and for many years was one of the teachers at the School of Homeopathy in the Netherlands where she taught various subjects such as Case Analysis, Theory and Methodology of homeopathy, Materia Medica, Jungian Psychology, and Attitude and Pitfalls of the professional caretaker.

Her interest in Peter Chappell’s work and the treatment of AIDS patients started when she, as the co-editor of Homoeopathic Links, witnessed in Malawi the impressive improvement of the patients treated with the PC remedies. She has co-edited ‘The Second Simillimum’ (Peter Chappell 2005) and ‘Homeopathy for Diseases’ (Chappell & van der Zee 2012).

Ale Riedstra :: Treasurer

Ale Riedstra works as leadership developer in commercial as well as not-for- profit organisations. His focus is on combining thinking and feeling, resulting in interventions in strategy, roles and responsibilities as well as team dynamics and personal growth. He is delivering his work globally, having clients in Europe, the US and Asia.

By being a catalyst, sparring partner, motivator and personal coach, he aims at rediscovering passions, aspirations, knowledge and creativity, often resulting in the opening up to new ideas and commitment to new achievements.

Vision & Mission

The ARHF wants to alleviate suffering and promote health and well-being.

Undesired side effects are an important disadvantage of pharmaceuticals. But not the only one. There is a growing awareness that suppressing disease in the long run creates more serious diseases. When the immune system overcomes a disease on its own, this results in a stronger and healthier individual. The use of chemical substances to kill micro-organisms blocks this evolutionary process. It results in weakened immunity in humans while the micro-organisms that survive antibiotics and antivirals become increasingly virulent and dangerous. It is considered that healing by resonance is becoming increasingly important because it acknowledges and strengthens the potential for self-healing in the individual, and is based on understanding the role played by diseases in evolution. The ARHF focuses on applying resonances for a wide range of conditions and on research into their efficacy.

ARHF offers training and treatment in Africa and other low-income countries to effectively treat epidemic diseases, inflicted trauma (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and chronic diseases.

Prescribing the PC Resonances used to treat these conditions requires little skill, so they can be used to good effect by health professionals that have no basis in homeopathy.

The treatment of chronic diseases by resonance is another target of the ARHF. The same principal of one remedy that covers all the symptoms of a disease is used. The treatment of chronic diseases with PC Resonances requires more case-taking skills though. Past infectious diseases or trauma usually underlie a chronic disease and it is important that the therapist recognises these and treats for them.

ARHF recognises that there are spiritual, mental, emotional and physical dimensions to healing diseases and embraces a holistic perspective in these matters.

Epidemics & Trauma

The foundation of the ARHF is a result of the positive experience with using resonance in treating AIDS and other epidemic diseases in Africa.

Besides epidemic diseases, trauma has great influence on the health and well-being of the people of Africa. Therefore, resonances for specific forms of trauma – e.g. the trauma of war, genocide, rape, and natural catastrophes – have been developed ever since 2005 and successfully used in thousands of cases.

The treatment of epidemics and trauma relief are prime targets of the ARHF. The focus of its activities is primarily on countries in Africa and similar ones elsewhere. Epidemics and collective trauma in these countries still determine the lives of millions of people, while medical aid is often not, or scarcely, available. If pharmaceutical drugs are available they often cause side effects or stop being effective due to therapy-resistance.

Malaria still has the biggest impact on the health and well-being of the peoples living in sub-Saharan Africa. Not only does malaria cause a lot of suffering and many deaths, the disease is also crippling Africa’s ability to thrive and create a better future for its children. Using resonance to prevent malaria and treat its chronic effects is another prime target of ARHF.
