GIVE MICROSCOPE TO FIGHT MALARIA INFECTION

Patients Omilling health Post

$295 donated is in the bank – but HO still needs $705 to reach our goal!

When a child living with malaria in Omilling gets a fever, the health workers cannot know the cause to make absolutely sure they give the right treatment.

To confirm a diagnosis of malaria infection the health worker need a microscope to detect parasites in a blood sample. This equipment is not available in the health post. As a result many children have been given malaria medication when in fact they are suffering from other diseases.

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