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

Malaria Awareness

malaria is among the killer diseases in the country and mostly in rural areas due to lack of proper medical attention and the lack of knowledge from the victims on how to prevent the infection of malaria in the society at large. This has led to the loss of life of children and the women in the region of Rusinga island. Due to this care international launched a programme to educate the mass on how to treat and prevent malaria infection and how toknow when one is infected with malaria. They also donated nets to children and pregnant women in order to reduce the rate of infection of malaria in the society. This program saved the lives of many women.
