Vaccinations continue to be a life-saving resource for hundreds of Malians in Ouelessebougou and the surrounding areas. When the practitioners come into the villages to administer the immunizations, women line up to have their babies and older children vaccinated. Most women have had a child or know of a child that has passed away due to preventable diseases so they are very grateful for these life-saving shots.
Many have asked if there are COVID vaccinations available to Malians. The answer is yes, in the larger cities. COVID vaccines have been distributed where people are in contact with one another more frequently and this seems to be effective as Africa's COVID rate remains low. Many of our villages receive very few visitors so they have also been able to avoid the virus.
We will continue to fight to keep vaccinations readily available to our villagers, especially pregnant women and children. With your help, we will continue to save hundreds of lives in the villages surrounding Ouelessebougou. Thank you
