small steps forward for Mashegu's vulnerable children

 Our community-based malaria project is progressing steadily. In the past two months, we reached over 116 families and households in saho-rami village with targeted malaria interventions including malaria treatment, free distribution of insecticide treated nets, malaria prevention education and chemoprophylaxis. 17 pregnant mothers and 23 nursing mothers received ITNs. This represents a small step forward for Mashegu’s vulnerable children. Our latest intervention
is especially important as we approach the rainy season when illnesses and deaths of children due to malaria are highest. Four year old little Amina and her mother were lucky to get a long lasting insecticide treated net. As her mother put, -"this is our best new year gift, now I can sleep with my two eyes closed", no more buzzing of mosquitoes in my ears, no more monthly fever episodes for little Amina".

Our modest efforts would not have been possible without the generous support from our donors. On behalf of the children and communities we serve in rural Mashegu, we thank you in a special way for donating to our malaria project through GlobalGiving Website. We thank you very much for your generosity. We thank you in a special way for donating over and over again to this project. We are indeed very grateful. The children, women and the entire villagers are very grateful as
well.
