Progress report on Health & Nutrition intervention

The project is successful, so far 200 households have been trained on malaria prevention, Hiv/Aids prevention and prevention of water borne diseases by community health workers. The number of 5 year olds treated for malaria  and malnutrition has declined due to increased awareness on prevention measures and importance of good nutrition by community members.

1000 bednets have been distributed to 200 households and 2000 neem tree seedlings planted, they act as mosquito repellents.

A quote from one of the beneficiaries; "I am very happy to sleep under the mosquito net, malaria has been a great problem in this village, now we shall be healthy and strong to carry out our daily duties, God bless you."

We are very grateful to our donors who have made it possible for us to get this far in helping needy communities, we welcome your comments and suggestions on how we could even do better.
