The Rotary Club of Leigh, who sponsor Bimma village, recently gave us £1,000 to spend on mosquito nets. The main beneficiaries were to be the Bimma community, but any nets left over could be given where most needed.
First a community meeting was held, to tell people where the nets came from. The meeting also discussed sanitation in the village and strategies to reduce mosquito spread.
Nicholas and two volunteers then visited every household to distribute the nets and train people in their use and maintenance. So far 350 nets have been distributed and, as shown in the photos, the people of Bimma were very pleased and grateful.
