Nets were purchased from a local supplier in Kampala.  Community leaders were instructed as to the importance and benefit of using treated mosquito nets.  Nurses and healthcare workers were trained and distributed nets through an existing network of community health centres and peripatetic clinics at Alemere, Adwir, Amolatar, Alebtong, Epyel and Aburkot.  Vulnerable adults, pregnant mothers and children under 5 years of age were targeted.

Your donations through the 2011 Harvest Appeal was shared.  In Uganda £1000 was spent on purchase, training and distribution of nets.
