15,000 + NETs!

Kosaviya

On November 15 and 16, NETwork Against Malaria distributed to two additional schools, Bweyale (1,967 students) and Siriba (1,120 students) primary schools. On behalf of the children at these schools thank you for your support.  These distributions bring our total nets distributed to greater than 15,000!!!  We could not do it without you. The pictures and videos are en route, and we will let you know as soon as we receive them.

 

I am particularly relieved that we distributed nets to Bweyale, as I met students who attend the school while I was traveling in Uganda.  Finally, I can rest assured that they all have nets.  One thing that worries me, though, is that our volunteers looked for one of the children I met named Kosaviya, and they could not find her.  Perhaps, she was not at school and is working—children from particularly poor families may help work instead of go to school? Perhaps, she had fallen ill—hopefully, we weren’t too late and it wasn’t malaria? Perhaps, she now attends a different school? We are going to continue looking for Kosaviya with the intention of protecting her from malaria, helping her stay in school get an education.  Who knows, perhaps one day I will entertain her if she comes to visit or study in the USA?  Until then, we will continue distributing nets to at-risk children like her. 

We could not do it without your help. 

Thanks again!
