World Malaria Month is officially over, the numbers have been tallied, and I finally feel like I can live and breath something other than malaria. I'm officially apologizing for ranting to anyone who will listen about malaria prevention, Benin Against Malaria programming or fighting for the cause. I appreciate your support as we work to build initiatives that will ultimately lead to disease elimination in Benin.
As a country, Benin STOMPed OUT MALARIA this month. The following newspaper article came out in the Beninese journal and I am still working to get my hands on the TV interview I gave on BB24 after the net distribution in Ladji!
To promote malaria related programming amongst volunteers in Benin, the BAM Committee hosted a competition to challenge volunteers to launch new initiatives in their villages. Together, we reached so many people, impacted thousands of lives across the country. I am so proud to work amongst such motivated and dedicated people here in Benin! Check out our success stats (and my first attempt at graphic design below!)
