Increase in Malaria

By Jane Kaye-Bailey | Founder

Malaria prevention remains a major priority. We are in the final stages of getting the full licenses for the new malaria products from the UK. Due a recent visit to Zambia I was saddened to learn that malaria is again on the increase in the Southern Province. We will step up our programmes, supply more mosquito nets and malaria educational workshops.

Last year our Zambia team reported that the repellent t-shirts, which were donated by a Portuguese company have really helped. None of them have had malaria these past few months nor been bitten by mosquitos. 100 repellent t-shirts are being used by children from Mahalulu Primary School, at the end of the raniy season in April we will do a full evaluation with the medical officer at the local clinic to see the effectiveness of the t-shirts.

We are working with the Zambian Minitry of Heatlh and the Malaria Control Centre to help the fight against malaria. In some areas there has been a substantial improvement, whereas areas that have not been sprayed are reporting new cases of malaria.

Children are our main concern and we will endeavour to provide protection whenever funds permit. We work closely with the rual clinic staff to monitor areas where we have distributed mosquito nets. A UK Rotary Club has kindly donated a motorcycle and kit for Mrs Meseke, our Environmental Officer, which will enable her to reach remote malaria ‘hot spots’. A private donor funded her training and running costs.

We need more funds to support the fight against malaria. Just $10 can buy a bednet, which could save a child's life.
