Dear Friends, Family and supporters of Serendipity,

Malaria is still the number one killer of pregnant women and children under the age of five. Kano has the highest number of out of patient cases of 1 child in every five cases seen coming down with Malaria related cases (PHC medical report of Tofa Town Community Hospital October 2023) Malaria keeps causing deaths of our children in Nigeria. Coming down home to Kano State where we are located has the highest figure of malaria related cases thus making the Federal Ministry of Health to continue the declaration of state of emergency in Kano on Malaria. This is a saddening and sorrowful and if we do not do anything soon to curb this the figures could be devastating.

We have been on awareness creation on the causal effects of Malaria, how to prevent it through environmental sanitation, sleeping under Insecticide Treated Nets, signs and symptoms of Malaria for both children and pregnant women. We currently run this program on radio every two weeks, and recently went into one of our adopted schools in Tofa Town in Tofa Local Government in Kano where we distributed Insectide Treated Nets to 13 children.

A continued awareness on prevention of malaria cases is ongoing with the radio stations we engaged in the local language (Hausa) and in English, we used this medium because it has a wider effect and our target communities are more comfortable using this medium of communication, our next strategy is to create fliers where we would distribute to households as a constant reminder on their walls.

We have achieved our initial target of 1000 beneficiaries given ITNS this year 2023 and hope to exceed it this coming year 2024.
