Protect 1800 people on Kokwa Island from Malaria

By Lucy Mathenge | Project assistant

The Kokwa community is progressing on well and we are happy to report that we implemented the intervention of distributing hygiene materials, mosquito nets and rehydration solution (ORS) for children as previously reported an initiative which was positively appreciated by the whole community and they expressed their gratitude to all those who supported them.  We also managed to conduct need assessment survey in Kokwa Island a very crucial intervention as we were able to learn and understand more about the Kokwa community their strength and their weaknesses.  The community cooperated very well and they freely and voluntary shared into details on the challenges and problems facing the Island.  Some of the areas that we focused on were; community health, water and sanitation, food and nutrition security, education, environment and resources.  The team conducting the baseline survey prepared a report that now gives the whole picture of the Island.  During the intervention some of the priority areas of interventions that requires immediate interventions are; community health, sanitation, food and nutrition security.  We were able to get more details and data from the current dispensary where we learnt that the cases of malaria in the Island is still high and most people were diagnosed with malaria parasite this year.  The team concluded that there is more to be done in the Island in order to improve the living standards of the community.  We intend to share this report and findings with all well-wishers and shareholders including County Government of Baringo and together we will realize some of the goals that we have already set.  The team divided the priority areas in 2 parts that is, long and short term interventions.  The short term interventions are the areas that required immediate support and they were not very expensive.  Long term intervention are areas that are critical and requires more resources to accomplish them .Some of the short term intervention identified were; supporting children in the community with health issues that required special medication, address the high cases of malaria, supporting school going kids with shoes, utensils for the school feeding program and remedial learning materials.  We are happy to report that we have already addressed the cases of medication and the children are now on medication but one of them will be required to go for operation in December 2018.  We have also supported the children with shoes and provided remedial learning materials in Kokwa and Kirepare primary schools.  We wish to request for more support from our global giving friends and other partners in order to enable us implement the interventions already identified.  In December 2018, we are organizing a stakeholder’s forum to inform the stakeholders the status of the Island and deliberate on what should be done for the support of the community.  Thank you all for the support given and we humbly request for more support in order to achieve our goals.
