Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Malaria Nets Distribution

Malaria is among the killer diseases in the country and in the continent of africa. The mostly affected are children and pregnant women. Due to the country being a third world country it translates to the high level of poverty in the slums. and in the rural areas Thus leading to lack of money to buy sleeping nets since the already available cash if used for food. This has led to the loss of life in the rural area of ndisi. Due to this care international launched a program to provide sleeping nets for the families in the rural ndisi. This was with the aim of providing nets for all women and children in order to prevent the loss of death via malaria infections in the region. This led to a significant drop of number of deaths due to malaria in the rural region. Thus saving the lives of children and coming generation.
