As part of its activities to mark the 2016 World Malaria Day, Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO), has offered free malaria screening and drugs to the residents of Oke Odo Community in Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Authority (LCDA).
The organisation also distributed Long Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets to the residents. The programme, which took place at the Baale of Oke Odo Palace, was organised by LAPO in collaboration with Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA.
The Executive Director of LAPO, Ms. Sabina Idowu-Osehobo, said the organisation was committed to the empowerment of the poor and vulnerable people through social, health and livelihood programmes.
Idowu-Osehobo was represented by Regional officer, Surulere Region, Mrs. Sandra Asowata, said the theme of this year’s event, “Ending Malaria for Good,” was very apt.
She stated that LAPO would continue to collaborate with the Roll Back Malaria Partnership and the Nigeria National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) with the overall objective of ensuring that malaria was brought under complete control.
