Jummai Aduda Organisation sets target for malaria-free FCT
The President Jummai Aduda Organisation, a Non-Governmental Organisation, Mrs. Hauwa Phillip Aduda, has said that the organisation will extend its outreach programme to many households in FCT.
She made the pledge, weekend, during the official starting of the distribution of 1, 200 long lasting insecticide treated nets and malaria intermittent preventive treatment in commemoration of this year’s World Malaria Day in Abaji Area Council.
Represented by the Project Coordinator, Mrs Lilian Tyosar, Aduda promised continued medical education programme on the prevention and management of malaria, using the new Artemisinin based combination therapy.
She said the organisation would distribute 100,000 doses for the residents through primary health centres and train over 500 patent medicine vendors on correct management of malaria among other things to be done.
Yaupe, Sinape and Amoko communities in Abaji Area Council directly benefitted from the organisation’s gesture this year.
Responding, the representative of the Abaji Area Council chairman, Jethro Zakaria, thanked the organisation for the gesture, urging the residents of the benefitting communities to use the free nets and drugs as expected.
One of the residents, Zainab Alhassan, said they were full of praises for the organisation and prayed for its continuity.
