Progress Report on Community Health Interventions.

The campaign on  conservation of Molo river is still ongoing, to ensure that families downstream are not affected any more by floods which are causing havoc to their livelihoods.

So far the project has supported 2000 beneficiaries with bednets, capacity building in environmental conservation and production of neem trees, not only for malaria protection but for its medicinal purposes, they are now drying the leaves of the tree and grinding to make neem powder which is important as  medicinal and for fertilization of the soils.

Neem powder is traditionally used to eliminate internal parasites, including tapeworm and ringworms. These parasitic infections are common in children but it should not be given to very young children .They intend to start selling the neem powder to other members of the community, before embarking in sourcing other markets once it is certified by Kenya bureau of standards.

We thank our donors for their continued support.
