Progress Report on Community Health Interventions.

The project has benefited the Kokwa community in a big way. In the last three months 850 bed nets were distributed to 170 families. Malaria cases have decreased, and we attribute this to cleaner environments especially no breeding sites. 1500 assorted seedlings including Neem have been planted by the households, Kokwa Dispensary and neighboring schools, the trees will not only act as mosquito repellants but form wood lots for future use as wood fuel to save on existing indigenous trees.

Through your kind donations we shall be able to provide all households with bed nets, build groups capacity in environment conservation and disease management and increase number of trees planted.
