Help keep children safe from malaria.
Malaria is the leading cause of death and illness in Uganda and is particularly dangerous for pregnant women and children under five. Uganda has one of the top rates of malaria in the world. Sleeping under an insecticide-treated mosquito net can reduce the chance of getting malaria by up to 60 percent. Families in rural areas often do not have access to nets and if they do, they are too expensive to purchase.
Uganda Village Project is fighting malaria by establishing mosquito net supply chains in the rural villages where they work. They conduct community education sessions to teach families how to prevent and treat malaria, and then they distribute subsidized mosquito nets so parents can protect their children from malaria. After every purchase, they follow up with the family to ensure the net is being hung properly and provide additional education on how to keep their children safe.
You can help. Just $10 helps provide a mosquito net to keep three kids safe from malaria.
Uganda Village Project facilitates health and community well-being in rural Uganda. We work at a village-by-village level to improve health through better access, education, and prevention.
