Remembering kwati a remote rural village

On 11th of November, PSJ's malaria team visited Kwati, a remote rural village located deep in the forest to conduct a malaria clinic and prevention outreach. The visit was highly anticipated by the community as they eargerly awaited the arrival of the mobile mlaria team in front of the village chief's house. On siting the team, there was a tunderous shout of joy among the villagers including men, youths, women and children who had gathered to recieve malaria treatment and prevention commodities including long-lasting insecticide treated nets (ITNs).

The mobile team led by a community physician diagnosed and treated 172 children of malaria. 38 pregnant mothers were also provided intermittent prophylaxis treatment. Pregnant and nursing mothers also recieved insecticide treated nets.  In addition, the team conducted a community-wide malaria prevention education.

The community elders and members were very grateful and were full of praise for our donors who supported the outreach to their community. On behalf of the communities we serve, Physicians for Social Justice expresses her profound gratitude to all our donors, many of whom have donated repeatedly to our malaria project. Thank you for all your support. Without them, we will not be able to serve these communities. Thank you.
