The End Of Malaria Project Extends To Jos, Nigeria
2019 IS A SUCCESS! Arise Nigeria campaign
For us at End Malaria Project, it’s about enhancing the sensitization on malaria in rural and urban communities where malaria is a big issue.
We don’t just teach you about malaria, we mobilize a team to practically show you how to prevent and control malaria through engaging in sanitation, advocacy campaigns, facilitating the distribution of long lasting insecticide treated nets amongst other strategies.
In communities where we see the need for a medical outreach just like Jenta Mangoro which plays host to about 30,000 people but yet has no primary healthcare facility, we always stage a free medical outreach to help cater for the health needs of the members of such community.
This year, we have worked with about 500 volunteers cutting across 5 states in Nigeria and the 17 LGAs of Plateau state. We have also worked with about 45 partners who are mostly local businesses and individuals.
Through their efforts, we have provided free medical services to about 1085 persons residing in Jenta Mangoro and Jenta Adamu communities of Jos, Plateau state Nigeria. We have also sensitized more than 30,000 people on malaria through our media engagements on radio, advocacy campaigns in the community and secondary schools.
We collaborated with Jos block malaria Community Initiative to carry out every phase of this year’s project and we are proud to say this collaboration is one of the best we have had in recent times.
Our team is made up of 89% young people, about 80% of the team are undergraduates still schooling in various institutions of learning across Nigeria.
To our volunteers and partners, we made it this far because of your consistent support and passion towards solving problems. Thank you for standing by us!
