The rainy season has begun, with vegetation sprouting all over the place. This is the period of peak intense malaria transmission, and deaths among children under five. In the past two months, with your support and generous contributions, PSJ’s dedicated team of 32 community volunteers have been visiting vulnerable families in five villages in rural Mashegu to provide targeted support including health education on early symptoms and signs of malaria, environmental sanitation, malaria prevention.
In the past 8 weeks, 45 Insecticide Treated Nets (ITNs) were distributed to vulnerable households as part of our malaria prevention strategy. Through our mobile clinics outreaches , we are also providing chemoprophylaxis and treatment to children and pregnant mums in remote rural communities. Our community volunteers are reaching out to caregivers and vulnerable families to educate them about malaria prevention.
We are profoundly appreciative to all those who made donations that made it possible for us to reach these vulnerable families and children. We thank you very much for donating over and over again to this project. We are indeed very grateful for your philanthropy and generosity. The truth is: your donations are saving lives; the lives of children and mothers. With your continued support, we will continue to save more lives. Thank you.
