Omilling health post need microscope badly!

 $145 – you donated is in bank account – but we still need $1355 to reach our goal!

When a person living in a malaria area gets a fever, health workers need to know the cause to make absolutely sure they give the right treatment.

For many years in Omilling primary health workers have often assumed a fever is caused by malaria, and give antimalarial drugs. This approach means sometimes people receive the wrong treatment for their illness. It also wastes resources and, over time, can promote resistance to available drugs.

These days, confirming a diagnosis of malaria infection is done by detecting parasites in a blood sample using a microscope. This requires a trained staff – health post at Omilling has one, but reagents and equipments all which are not there – including a microscopes.

We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help local people to get out from the cycle of malaria infections. Children are paying a higher price!
