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.

Arrow Web Hospital would like to maintain stock of mosquito netting that can be provided to women in the Kayole-Soweto community with children under the age of 5-years. If the hospital can get an initial supply to keep in stock, the hope is that they would be able to add a line item to the budget to purchase replacements for those that are given out each month.
The hospital presently treats around 200 patients per month. Out of these, approximately 75% are women with children under the age of 5 years. The estimated cost for purchasing a treated mosquito net locally is $5 USD.
