Update from our Jan 2011 Stop Malaria Campaign

Stop Malaria Campaign II - NHIS (Wiomuah)

Dear Friends of Ahoto,

Following the success of Ahoto's January 2010 Stop Malaria Campaign, and with significant support from GlobalGiving.org, we planned a second but scaled up sequel to our previous project, dubbed  "Stop Malaria Campaing II" in January of 2011. The Ahoto team led by Timothy Kotin and Mureji Fatunde, traveled to the Central Region of Ghana to carry out the project.

During this month-long project, the Ahoto team and friends from Free Foundation Ghana, our local sister organization, registered over 400 invididuals, comprised mostly of pregnant mothers and children under five for Ghana’s National Health Insurance Scheme in Essiam and Wiomuah. Our efforts were primarily intended to complement a UNICEF-supported government effort to assuage the burden of malaria through an improved bed net distribution campaign.

Our team also conducted pre-distribution general health and malaria awareness surveys in the communities, as well as extensive impact surveys for our Stop Malaria Campaign from January 2010. Preliminary results from our ongoing surveys indicate declines in malaria incidence among beneficiaries of our previous initiatives, as well as increased use of treated bednets among families and increased voluntary re-registration for National Health Insurance service.

The inhabitants of Essiam, Wiomuah and Akotokyir continue to express their gratitude for your support! 

Yeda mo ase!

Update from our Jan 2011 Stop Malaria Campaign

 

Dear Friends of Ahoto,

Have a look at the photographs below. Mary, Mark, David, Frank, Gertrude and Ebenezer are six of the many children in Ghana’s Cape Coast area who have benefited from our Stop Malaria Campaign. Today, they all have health insurance, which means that their parents no longer have to hesitate to take them to hospital if and when they fall sick with Malaria. As the results of our work become more and more apparent, are appreciation for your support only continues to grow.

Take a look at these young faces. They are among the many you have helped lead safer, more secure lives.

Currently, Ahoto is in talks with local organizations that work in the fields of agriculture and community development. Good health is the bedrock of every stable community, but by itself it does not lead to development. At Ahoto, we believe in small, practical projects that benefit the lives of the communities we serve.
Me’edase,

Happy new year, and thank you!

Dear Friends of Ahoto,

Happy new year! Using your funds, we carried out a comprehensive malaria intervention across several communities in Ghana's Central Region this January. At the moment we are preparing a detailed report of our Stop Malaria Campaign 2011, and perhaps even more excitedly, working on a new direction in which to take the Ahoto Partnership. This is an important year for us, as we transition from a small, student-run group to a more dynamic organization.

In a few days we shall also have photographs up from our trip to Ghana in January! The photos will be available on our website (ahotopartnership.org), and we shall send out the link over GlobalGiving.

Meda wo ase!

Ahoto Newsletter--Fall 2010

Dear Friends of Ahoto,


Thank you so much for supporting us on GlobalGiving’s September Open Challenge. We ended up raising more money for our Stop Malaria Campaign this winter than we had expected from the site, and finished among the top 20 in a fundraising contest involving over 150 different projects from allover the world! Ahoto’s Stop Malaria Campaign is now permanently featured on GlobalGiving.org.


Visit us at globalgiving.org/6116. None of this would have been possible without your support!


We are currently working on a comprehensive community assessment that we will implement in every community we work in from now on, in order to better grasp what every community’s problems and resources are. More information on this is always available on our website: ahotopartnership.org


Meda wo ase,
