Malaria is our biggest killer, we must protect ourselves by sleeping under a net.
Thanks to your support, we helped fund net distributions and malaria education programmes to protect people from malaria in Ghana like Chief Nana and all those in his region. Chief Nana says: “We thank you… to give us our health is very important so we appreciate what you have done”. The Chief actively supported the project by hosting malaria awareness events and education campaigns to ensure the nets were correctly hung up in people’s homes and that everyone understands the practical steps they can take to prevent the spread of the disease. He will be following up on the net distribution with home visits to check the nets are still being correctly used and by organising further malaria discussions to keep up the local momentum to fight the disease.
