An Update on Project Mosquito Nets

An Update on Project Mosquito Nets - Nets Distribution in Zambia in 2011

Power of Love Foundation’s (POL) Project Mosquito Nets (PMN) program provides long lasting insecticide treated bed nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia. Power of Love’s PMN was launched in Zambia in April 2010. To date more than 3800 long lasting mosquito nets have been distributed in one urban are and one rural area in Zambia. We would like to sincerely thank donors who continue to support this program. It is with your support that we were able to provide 1500 insecticide treated nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia in 2011.

Achievements of Project Mosquito Nets in 2011

We were able to provide 1500 insecticide treated nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia in 2011.

1. In January 2011, we provided 500 long lasting insecticide treated nets in Lusaka, Zambia.

2. In October 2011 we provided 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets to people vulnerable to Malaria in Kapiri-Mposhi, a rural area in Zambia.

3. Education on prevention of malaria, proper treatment and maintenance of nets was provided to recipients of nets.

Attached is a picture of a volunteer noting the weight of the child and asking his mom about the health of her child at the nets distribution event in October 2011.

Impact of the Distribution

Provision of bed nets and education on malaria prevention and proper use and maintenance of nets will go a long way in eradicating malaria from the community. We expect to see a marked reduction in the incidence of malaria due to: (i) lower infection rates will lead to higher school attendance, and (ii) health of people living with HIV/AIDS will improve as their immune system is not further compromised due to malaria.

Future Plans

1. The next distribution of a 1000 nets is planned for September 2012 before the malaria season in Zambia.

2. At this time we are raising funds to provide an additional 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets (LLIN’s) in one rural areas in Zambia in 2012. Your support to this program will go a long way in preventing malaria and keeping the children healthy and in school.     

Thanks
