Project Mosquito Nets - Next Distribution of Nets in Fall 2012

Project Mosquito Nets – Next Distribution of Nets in Zambia in Fall 2012

Power of Love Foundation’s (POL) Project Mosquito Nets program provides long lasting insecticide treated bed nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia. We would like to say a big “Thank You” to you for supporting this program. With your support,  we were able to provide 2000 insecticide treated nets to women and children vulnerable to Malaria in Zambia in 2011. For a detailed report of the distribution activities please visit http://poweroflove.org/project-mosquito-nets-launched-rural-zambia.

Next Distribution of Nets: In fall 2012, we will be distributing 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets to women and children vulnerable to malaria. The distribution activities will include a demonstration regarding the proper use, treatment and maintenance of nets, and education on malaria prevention.

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

Need for Nets: Follow-up interviews with nets recipients indicates that the nets distributed over the last 2 years, are in good condition and are being used for malaria prevention by the beneficiary households. These interviews also highlighted the need for more nets as there are several hundred households without bed nets in Zambia. 

 

Request for Funds: At this time we are raising funds to provide 1000 long lasting insecticide treated nets (LLIN’s) in the fall of 2012 and an additional 1000 nets in Spring 2013. Please donate generously as your donation will go a long way in preventing malaria and keeping the children healthy and in school.     

Thanks for your support and encouragement.
