Mosquito Nets - posted by Katherine Franks on 2006-05-24
HI, I work for a small NGO in Australia, with partenrs in Malawi and Zambia. WE have recently run a fundraiser for Mosquioto Nets, realizing the huge problem of malaria in these countries. I have a few quotes on insecticide treated nets, yet was wondering if you could recommend a place to purchase them from (we have nearly $20000). I have been told to get them from China, yet am concerned of the quality of paying before buying. I have heard they are in shortage in Malawi. Do you have any recommendations for this? We are working through our local partners and they have recommended PSI at 660 kwatcha net - do you know of anywhere else? We obviously want to get as many good quality nets for the money so we can save as many lives as possible. Also they have said that there are paid health workers who do training - do you kow where we can get our hands on any material to take with us to also do some training? I would appreciate your advice. Many thanks, Katherine Franks Overseas Projects Manager Every Home for Christ Ltd.

Insecticide treated nets and the spread of malaria - posted by rehema mbete on 2006-01-19
my question is that of regarding child mortality rate and malaria where by the children sleep under the ITNs so as to prevent malaria but at the end of the day they still get infected by malaria.could it be that some cultural,economic and environment be the cause of all this?or could it be that the NGOs and the Government did not involve the community in the preventive measures?please help me to know what is still leading to child mortality in relation to malaria
DDT - posted by Craig Stevenson on 2005-11-11
I have just read a Mail & Gaurdian artcile (09/11/05)that appears to be advocating the continued use of DDT as a malaria control measure. I believe the article grossly under reports on vast environmental and human health studies (many of which commissioned well after the 60s) that show DDT is a long lived problem we can do without. To advocate the use of DDT to save lives is highly misleading. The fact that malaria control saves thousands of lives cannot be used to offset decades' worth of bioaccumulated toxin and associated human health hazards. Furthermore, to compare DDT to coffee is also highly misleading. Suggest your researchers focus a little more on the available research to provide other readers with a balanced review. Thanks Craig

Volunteers for Humanitarian Projects - posted by Golden Munyaka Ph.D. on 2005-07-22
We recruit volunteers for humanitarian projects worldwide. Letsdocharities helps young people develop their leadership skills by engaging in projects that improve the quality of life for marginalized members of our respective communities. Letsdocharities is based on celebrating human dignity and nurturing a culture of peace across political boundarities. Volunteers are expected to excel in their local communities before engaging on global humanitarian projects. To avoid self-selection bias letsdocharities gives local communities the right to expose volunteers who fail to foster basic human rights as defined by their respective legitimate social norms. Volunteers are also expected to register with local volunteer organizations particularly for college credit reporting purposes. Volunteers drive their own projects based on self-interests. Letsdocharities only serves as a platform for recruitment and sharing of experiences and information.

Mosquito bites - posted by Mrs J Cormack on 2005-07-07
Just to remind you that the best self-help for a mosquito bite is bicarbonate of soda in a little boiling water - make it just bearable with cold water and bathe the bites when they itch. Not a cure for Malaria but it will comfort the patient.

I wish we could go back to the days of limited use of DDT in the homes. The extreme left has defamed so many useful products in the same of self-justification.
America's Fair Share? - posted by John Burgoyne on 2005-06-26
I'd like to see what formula you used to determine "America's Fair Share" of Africa's needs? As a tax paying American, I think our country is, no matter how you measure it, the most generous country on earth. Why should we lay out even more money? Can other countries step up and give more? Respectfully, John BUrgoyne
Stuff - posted by Amber on 2005-06-26
It's not just africa suffering from Malaria, it is most of the tropical countries aswell. No just the Africans need help. I'm not saying they don't but other places need help too!!!
Thank you - posted by Alison Geeves on 2005-06-24
Thank you, I found your website useful whilst researching methods of reducing Malaria. However, I disagree with the use of DDT for treatment, when we consider the problems and economic cost it caused countries like the UK, can we really put such a burden on a lesser economically sound places like Africa?
