How we’re helping to cover Ghana’s Ashanti Region with 2.5 million nets2Comments
This month 2.5 million mosquito nets are being distributed in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. These life-saving nets, provided through support from The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, and US President’s Malaria Initiative, will be used to cover the region’s entire population of 5 million people.
Thanks to funds raised and donated by our supporters, we have been able to provide volunteers with the vital supplies needed to hang these nets in every home, provide guidance on their care and use, and help people to sleep protected from malaria.
Take a look at our photo story below, which gives a real insight into just what is involved in this mammoth effort.
Thank you to ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! , Tesco Global Finance Directors, and all of those who donated through The Big Give Christmas Challenge – it’s your support that has helped us make this possible.
This work is part of our ongoing collaborative partnership in Ghana aiming to distribute enough nets to protect everyone, in every region, by the end of 2012.
