Update from malaria outreach to rural Sahon-rami

In December 2013, Preventing Childhood Malaria Deaths conducted a malaria prevention outreach in Sahon-rami, the village that could be considered as the birth place of the project in 2007. The setting was the community primary school, where the malaria team set up mobile clinic tents to receive and treat sick women and children who had earlier been told about the visit by the mobile clinic team.

At the end of the outreach, 198 children were treated for malaria using the standard artesunnate combination therapy (ACT). Also 82 nursing and pregnant mothers received targeted malaria prevention education, prophylaxis, treatment. Nursing mothers were also educated on how to recognize early symptoms and signs of malaria and on the need for sick children to receive prompt medical attention. This is particularly important because most of the deaths due to malaria among infants is due to delays in commencing treatment for such children. Thousands of young children who suffer acute attacks of malaria frequently develop complications such as anaemia and convulsions, because they do not receive prompt treatment, and such complications are usually the cause of their death.

We are very grateful to all our donors who support the work we do. We thank you very much for donating over and over again to this project. We are very grateful to you. Thank you for supporting the work we do. Your continued support to our work has been our biggest strength. On behalf of the communities we serve, we say thank you for all your support.
