Umar sleeps easy under protection
Dear Family, Friends and supporters of Serendipity,
Our goal of zero malaria infection amongst the children and women in Madobi has started yielding its fruits whence from reports from the nearby primary healthcare center has shown a 50% reduction in the malaria related cases. This was as a result of our continued campaigns and advocacy for women to sleep under the insecticide treated nets that we provide for them.
The project "Precious Lives" which is a project within our project and the initial intension to span just a week has now taken a new dimension where children and women come forward to tell their stories on how their lives have changed and the effect of these trainings on their community. As a result of this, seven new brides formed their own project tilted "Lafiyar Uwa" which translated from the local language means "Mother's Health" where if there is a new bride in the community they would gather funds from the community and buy her an Insecticide Treated Net such that she does not fall under the scourge of malaria when pregnant.
More trainings on home mamangement of malaria was conducted for women as well as Insecticide Treated Nets were distributed to children thus expanding our reach to additional three wards in the community.
We are happy to have achieved so much on this project irrespective of shortage of funds but we have been able to create so much impact in the lives of the women and children; this was evaluated through reports from the health care center and physical cleanliness of the communities.
There is so much to be done hence we are soliciting for your continous support to help us acheive our goal of reducing malaria in madobi, Kano.
We would appreciate your feedback, advice on how we can do our work better; You can follow us on twitter @serendipityHea1, like our facebook page/serenhealthcare, LinkedIn/samirahfaruk or visit our website www.serendipityhealthcare.org
