You need Antimalaria on Trip to Omilling!

Fighting Malaria for two weeks!
Fighting Malaria for two weeks!

Thanks for your long term support to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan.

Ochieng nearly died after catching one of the most severe forms of malaria during a trip to visit Mairo primary school building project.

He did not take antimalarial medication, believing the course he had taken for a previous trip to Uganda still protected him. However, he fell ill soon after returning to Uganda after spending two weeks in South Sudan and spent two weeks fighting in the hospital. A pastor was even called to give Ochieng his last rites after doctors feared he would not survive.

" I was told I could have died, says Ochieng. " Compared to what I went through, the potential mild discomfort of taking antimalarial pills is nothing."

Ochieng hopes his story will raise awareness of about the risks of Malaria to volunteers visiting Omilling, to take with them antimalarial tablets, and help the village get microscope donated for malaria testing.

Ten-insecticide mosquito nets had been purchased and distributed to children who are severely sick from malaria. Sleeping under these nets will protect them against mosquito.

This project needs only $288 to reach its budget goal. In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted, so you get to know what has happened from the field.
