Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Mosquito Nets, Malaria Gone

i was really pleased when i saw mosquito nets being supplied for free among people in their homes to prevent malaria since our climate is tropical, my area is a mosquito prone area and many people die yearly because of malaria, many of the being small children. The nets sponsored by unicef were supplied in every house old with atleast every body in the house owning a net. Their treatment was also considered as the tablets were given and their prices in shops subsidised so as everybody can afford to treat a net. The many mosquitoes coming from a sewage plant nearby during the rainy season will be reduced since all people will be safe under the nets and one will donate blood to mosquitoes
