IN AN effort to combat malaria, pregnant mothers and children below five years in Makindye division have received free insecticide - treated mosquito nets.

The 2,500 nets worth $50,000 (sh85m) were a donation from Barclays Bank.
The nets were distributed by Barclays Bank staff at Hope Clinic Lukuli, recently.

This exercise is part of the on-going countrywide ‘No More Malaria’ initiative aimed at reducing the risk of malaria infection among pregnant women and children below five years.

Michael Kaddu, the head of corporate affairs Barclays Bank, encouraged pregnant women to attend antenatal clinics and report for treatment if they get symptoms like fever.

He said each household in Makindye division would be given two insecticide-treated mosquito nets.

Hope Clinic Lukuli offers free malaria testing and treatment to Makindye residents. It also offers child immunisation services.
