Stop Malaria!

Today, one of the students in baby class at Edirisa's Kyabahinga nursery died, two days after a P4 student from Kyabahinga Primary died, as well. The culprit? Malaria and a lack a health services at Lake Bunyonyi.

Malaria kills one million people a year, the majority of whom are women and children, despite the fact that malaria is both preventable and curable. With proper education, mosquito-control activities and adequate, affordable & available medicine, malaria's impact can be easily cut in half.
