A letter from our fellow Rotarian:
It is my pleasure to share with you a good news that for this week I have been busy with implementation of the project RAM and MPI funded to provide 1411 mosquito nets in Muheza and providing a basic training on Malaria to Community health volunteers (CHWs).
It has been my pleasure with my colleagues (Rotaractors from KCMC) to take lead of the project which has really been amazing and impactful.
We provided the LLINs to the hospitals, health centers, dispensaries and government boarding schools which was cordially received and appreciated. We ensured the nets are hanged and we agreed that malaria focus person with help of some local government leaders who joined us will be following up the proper usage. We shall also plan a revisit.
The training was facilitated by a professional trainer from National institute of research (NIMR) with help of Malaria focus person under National Malaria intervention guidelines.
Thanks a lot for your support and guidance which enabled me and my team to do our best.
