Every year, about 10,000 deaths are registered in Uganda with the highest number of cases arising from Northern Uganda mainly because of the 20-year insurgency that crippled most of its infrastructure inclusive of health facilities. These districts include Lira, Oyam, Pader, Lmawo, Kitgum, Gulu, and Oyam among others.
Despite the government putting in place a malaria reduction strategic plan with indoor residual spraying, the malaria burden is still high and yet private clinics charge an equivalent of 50,000 Ugandan Shillings to treat a patient. Because of this, some have opted to burn dry pawpaw leaves around their houses to drive away mosquitoes.
WE ARE RAISING FUNDS TO:
- Subsidize 20,000 products at 25 cents per product.
- Create awareness about malaria in four districts and reach up to 40,000 people.
- Launch a WASH Project to create awareness on sanitation. Hold trainings for community representatives, and WASH committee members on water system management, environmental sanitation and hygiene as well as forming and reactivating WASH committees.
- By supporting our campaign, you will be educating over 50000 people and giving them hope to put an end to malaria in their homes.
