Firm distributes mosquito nets to Makoko, Epe residents
IN commemoration of the World Malaria Day, a leading online shopping community, Kaymu has partnered with a non-governmental organisation, Slum To School, to combat the scourge of malaria through its “Net a child’’ campaign.
The team visited Makoko and Epe communities to distribute treated mosquito nets and sensitize the communities on the prevention and treatment of the infectious disease caused by the Plasmodium parasite.
In a statement the Managing Director of Kaymu Nigeria, Evangeline Wiles, said: “Malaria has a devastating socio-economic impact in the country and all efforts must be intensified by the government and corporate organizations to eradicate the disease.
“To this end, we have partnered with Slum to School and Apostles of the Marketplace to spread awareness about the cause of malaria and preventive measures to residents of Makoko and Epe.”
