Mosquito nets for Nabitende: share your experience of net distribution in Uganda, or help us raise money

Status: Just started
Step: 
2

Malaria is a problem in Nabitende so EFORDE wishes to provide mosquito nets to community members.

They would like to start by obtaining 100 nets to be distributed to children, mothers and the elderly.

Many organisations provide free or reduced-cost nets in Uganda but, because of the high level of need across the country and lack of information on application procedures, it is not easy for a community to be selected to receive these nets.

This task is intended to combat the high rate of malaria among the orphaned children in the community of Mawoito. Therefore if provided with nets, it will help in combating the spread of malaria in the community. Malaria is currently the most killer disease in the community of Mawoito. It poses a significant threat among the children - especially the orphaned children who lack parental care.

Hi everybody,

Thanks Emmanuel for attaching the document. I really hope that Erick could come to Wakitaka and train the youths.
The document contains just some first ideas, so please go ahead and comment. I am sure there are some more ideas we could find.

Have a good week-end everybody - "bon week-end" in French

Hello Tonny,

Regarding - 'the poor families are not able to afford' - in your post above, the following might help the community:

- money is not required to remove collected water from drains, or household utensils, etc where mosquito larvae may be breeding. It is an activity to be done on a daily basis by each household on their own, and by themselves.

Till you get the mosquito nets, the following precautions could be immediately taken:

- breeding of mosquito larvae must be stopped. Mosquito larvae breed in stagnant water like stored water in houses, water tanks, drains, ponds, etc. All such stored water must be drained regularly wherever possible.
