Distributed by ACDT

The Africa Childrens Development Trust is a UK based non profit organisation dedicated to providing chiropractic care & protection from malaria to underprivileged children in Uganda. The Trust aims to provide 6 monthly chiropractic care to children under 16 years of age living in some of the poorest areas, villages & orphanages. The Trust will also strive to provide each child with a mosquito net to support the prevention of malaria which kills approx 800,000 children in Africa each year.

LLINs

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'.

This distribution will be to the rural village of Nakaswa. The whole distribution will be to children living in this area. The population of the area is approx 2500.

This is a high risk area not just because of Uganda being a high risk country but because of the location & the poor conditions the children live in.
