Disrupt Malaria: Netlife- working with and for Senegal to increase mosquito net usage

Update posted by Susan Greenman On Jan 18, 2019

Hello All!

I am overwhelmed by the amount of support and love I have received from various communities: old college friends, new Rochester friends, Returned Peace Corps Volunteers from around the world.... and more

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are getting closer to our goal, but not quite there yet. If you know of anyone with disposable income, please share.

So updates on the trip. Murphy's law of course applies, no matter what one is doing. In the few weeks before leaving, we had to switch our mosquito net supplier, and received some new info from our partners on the ground about the state of things. We found out that a lot of the villages we are visiting have not received government nets recently, so the need is a lot more than we anticipated, about 1000 nets more. Luckily, our new mosquito net supplier has helped us lower the price so we are able to cover about 200 of those nets. We're hopeful that we will still have a meaningful impact in the few villages where we aren't able to cover every family.

As the date draws closer, we are packing our bikes into boxes (thank you Rochester Community Bikes!) and getting out our headlamps.

Thank you all for your help in making this possible.

Try to keep your clothes organized while you’re over there. And don’t eat anything you’re not supposed to.
