THE STORY:

PROJECT BITE MALARIA BACK!
Community-Based Malaria Prevention and Treatment in Yirimadjo, Mali

Every year more than a 880,000 people, 85% of them infants and children under 5 in sub-Saharan Africa die from Malaria. In Yirimadjo, Mali in West Africa, more than 3,000 cases of malaria were reported in 2009, and the number of unreported cases is likely much higher. Freeing the world of this widespread killer is no easy task. But Rotary Clubs in Africa, North America and Europe have been doing their part and we need your help to scale up their efforts.

The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill and Rotaract DC invites you to “bite malaria back” to save the lives and livelihoods of those who suffer from this mosquito-borne disease by supporting Project Muso - a grassroots, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working in Yirimadjo, Mali with a proven track record fighting and preventing malaria.

Project Bite Malaria Back is a collaborative endeavor led by the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill in collaboration with several clubs in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area and the Rotary Club of Bamako-L'Amitie, Mali in support of Project Muso’s Community-Based Malaria Prevention Program which aims to treat those infected with malaria, while preventing new infections from occurring.

OUR OBJECTIVES

Stop preventable deaths from malaria by:

Delivering life-saving malaria and primary care medications, health care visits, laboratory analysis, and clinic services such as IV therapy and blood transfusions at no cost to the poorest community members affected by malaria and other serious illnesses in Yirimadjo, Mali.

Providing insecticide-treated, long-lasting three person bed nets to children under five and pregnant women to protect them against mosquito bites which cause malaria. Each net can protect up to 3 people against mosquito bites which cause malaria.

Ensuring that pregnant women in the community receive SP malaria prophylaxis, a medication that prevents malaria during pregnancy.

Thank you for your support!
