- Every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.
- Malaria is a preventable disease.
- Ten dollars buys a long lasting net that protects a child for 3-5 years.
We are excited to announce in December we were notified that our proposal to Swim For Malaria was accepted and we were granted a donation of 6,000 nets, a gift in kind of $30,000. This generous donation will allow us to greatly expand our Health Education Day this year. In preparation for this expansion the Akado Clinic staff, Magdaline, Joyce and Peter have planned an assessment that will cover over in the area of Rusinga Islande, Gembe and the Mbita Township. The assessment will occur before the net distribution and will be used to determine which orphaned and vulnerable children should receive the nets. Once the determination is mad then the nets will be distributed. The distribution will be both video taped and photographed and both World Swim Against Malaria and our website will display the photos and final report.
To view the distribution areas and take a look at the distribution plan you can go to the following links at Swim Against Malaria.
We are currently raising $4000 in funds to pay for the transportation and delivery of these nets to the children and women who need them. If you would like to donate please go here: http://www.simplycookingschool.com/projectmosquitonet.org/donate.
