Challenge

Children in very poor families often sleep at night without the basic sleeping materials like mats, mosquito nets and blankets. They are prone to shivering during cold nights and attacks by anopheles mosquitoes which carry the dreaded malaria virus. Once they are infected, their blood sucked by mosquitoes will infect others and bring sickness to the whole family. The community is then debilitated.

Solution

This project will provide mosquito nets, blankets and mats to children and their families in remote villages here in order to provide them warm and comfort as well as to prevent the spread of malaria virus. This simple life-saving initiative will have far-reaching positive effect as residents are healthy and well and able to contribute meaningfully to their communities.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of the project is the prevention of malaria because of the distribution and use of mosquito nets and sleeping materials as well as the heightened improved well-being of children in being able to sleep well at night. Due to extreme poverty, this sleeping material is often lacking and our support will be greatly appreciated by the community.
