Distributed by Suto Yediya

Suto Yediya is an organization dedicated to providing long lasting insecticidal treated nets to Gambian families that are at a high risk for the contraction of malaria. Our goal is to provide "blanket coverage" for the remote village of Barrow Kunda in the Upper River Division of The Gambia. Like most rural Gambian villages, Barrow Kunda has suffered immensly from malaria. But if our project is successful, every person in Barrow Kunda will sleep under a treated net and the malaria burden for this village will be significantly reduced.

What is a Long-Lasting Insecticidal Net (LLIN)?

An LLIN is a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.

The insecticide is cleverly bound within the fibres that make up the netting and is 'slow released' over a 4-5 year period. Hence 'long lasting'.

Barrow Kunda, Wuli District, Gambia  

Nets: 800 LLINs
When: Dec 09
Distributed by  Suto Yediya    Suto Yediya


The Wuli District is in the Upper River Region in the east of The Gambia and suffers badly from malaria.

Kunda Barrow is one village in the district. With 800 nets we will achieve blanket coverage of all sleeping spaces in the village.

We hope this will be just the first step in raising further funds and working with other groups to achieve blanket coverage in all villages in Wuli District.
