Vaccinations begin soon!

Our vaccination program will kick in to gear within the next month.  We are thrilled to include 23 new villages this year for a total of 121 villages in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali, West Africa that will receive immunizations.

The vaccines prevent against nine diseases: polio, yellow fever, measles, tuberculosis, diptheria, hepatitis A, the flu, tetanus, and vitamin A deficiency.

Our goal this year is to ensure that at lesat 95% of children in the region are fully vaccinated.

We are pleased to partner with the Malian government.  While the govervnment has the means to provide vaccines at no-cost, they are unable to distribute them to rural communities.  In an effort to reach even more people, the Ouelessebougou Alliance plans to train another individual on how to give vaccines.

YOUR support is a life saver. Truly.  Thank you!!!

Mosquito Nets Distributed to Villagers

Anounou, our Field Director in Mali, reports that 1,000 mosquito nets were distributed to villagers in the last few weeks.

THANK YOU for helping make that possible!

Every sixty seconds a child in Africa dies from the disease.  Every year 600,000 people, most of them under the age of 5, die.

High quality nets treated with insecticide are the best and most cost efficient means to protect against malaria.

There are never enough nets for everyone who needs one so our goal this year is to reach even more families. To do that, we continue to need your help and support.  

 

$10 can buy a net and save a life.  

 

Thanks!

Mosquito nets are the solution!

Health training encourages use of mosquito nets!
Health training encourages use of mosquito nets!

It is summer so many of us are familiar with the buzz of mosquitos and the annoying bites that make us itchy and uncomfortable.

In Mali, however, mosquito bites are more than annoying. They are deadly.

Treated mosquito nets are the most cost-efficient and effective tool we have to elminate malaria.  We subsidize over 75% of the cost so that villagers can easily afford to protect themselves and their families.  During the 13-14 operating year, we plan to expand our mosquito net project to meet the demand of villagers.

We thank you for your support of this project so that we can meet our objective to have every village family covered (literally and figuratively) against Malaria.

Thanks for being part of the solution!
