MISSION CAPSULES: In Thimalala village in Malawi, Jimmy Gondwe was not sleeping well. He was concerned about the mosquitoes inside his home, fearing they carried the deadly malaria virus. While malaria rates have gone down in Malawi, it remains a significant health challenge, especially among pregnant women and children. Malaria-carrying mosquitoes mostly bite at night, with more than 80% of transmission occurring indoors. To help ensure more households stay healthy and malaria free, a PWS&D project is helping to safely treat homes with insecticide. Jimmy reports that since the project, he feels safer inside his home – a now mosquito-free environment. “I am grateful for the support,” Jimmy said.
