Nets for Nets
During 2020 and 2021 Coronavirus was the World Wide overriding health topic.
However in the area of Kenya where Timboni school is located malaria remains a killing disease (in addition to Covid 19). Children are routinely at risk from mosquito bites and subsequent malarial diseases. Bites can lead to chronic illnesses, lost months from school and, very sadly, sometimes in death.
A mosquito net can save families from these horrific consequences and, if purchased locally in Mombasa costs around £4, not much more than a cup of coffee in a UK coffee shop.
Under The Mango Tree has been supplying nets for all pupils and staff for a number of years but it is an ongoing challenge.
We now need a re-supply to ensure that every child and every member of staff at Timboni school has an effective mosquito net.
The target for 2021 / 2022 is to raise a further £1,500 specifically for mosquito nets.
