ONE NET PER CHILD
Mosquito nets for Nabitende: share your experience of net distribution in Uganda, or help us raise money
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.
