WAHU AND MORTEIN DOOM CELEBRATE WORLD MALARIA DAY
Celebrated singer and songwriter Wahu joined Mortein Doom and Mbagathi Hospital to donate Mortein Doom gift bags to mothers and their new born at the Mbagathi Hospital in Nairobi yesterday.
As part of its continuous activities to fight Malaria in Kenya RB, through its brand, Mortein Doom has renewed its partnership with Mbagathi Hospital. The partnership is part of this year’s World Malaria Day activities and in line with the universal theme of ‘Ready to Beat Malaria’.
Speaking during the event, Wahu said. “I am humbled to be part of this great initiative by Mortein Doom, it is important to educate the public especially women on the prevention of Malaria. Women play a critical role in our society, and as a mother I feel there is need to empower us more since when you educate a woman, you educate a whole village and this goes a long way in getting things done.”
According to the Malaria Control Unit, nationally Malaria prevalence has declined from 11 percent in 2010 to 8 percent in 2015, with 3 percent among urban residence and 10 percent among rural dwellers across the country.Views: 1441
