Power of Love Foundation’s (POL) Project Mosquito Nets program provides long lasting insecticide treated nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia. We would like to say a big “Thank You” for supporting this program. With your support, we were able to provide 1000 insecticide treated nets to women, children, and people living with HIV/AIDS in 2012. For a detailed report of the distribution activities click here.
Next Distribution of Nets: We are planning on distributing 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets to women, children and people living with HIV/AIDS in September 2013. The distribution activities will include education on prevention of malaria, distribution of long lasting insecticide treated nets, and a demonstration regarding the proper use, treatment and maintenance of nets.
Impact of the Distribution: Provision of bed nets and education on malaria prevention and proper use and maintenance of nets goes a long way in eradicating malaria from the community and improving the health of HIV positive people and especially children. Beneficiaries of nets report a marked reduction in the incidence of malaria among adults and an increase in school attendance amongst children.
Need for Nets: Follow-up interviews with nets recipients indicates that the nets distributed over the last 2 years, are in good condition and are being used for malaria prevention by the beneficiary households. These interviews also highlighted the need for more nets as there are several hundred households without bed nets in Zambia.
Request for Funds: At this time we are raising funds to provide 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets (LLIN’s) in the fall of 2013 and an additional 1000 nets in Spring 2014. Please donate generously as your donation will go a long way in preventing malaria and keeping the children healthy and in school.
Thanks again for your dedication to keep families malaria free in Zambia.
