Distributed by Power of Love Foundation

The Power of Love Foundation is a secular US non-profit that was founded in 2002 by 3 friends Suresh and Alka Subramanian, and Ellen Furnari to develop community responses to the AIDS crisis in Africa. For some years, the founders had been traveling to and funding programs in Kenya and Zambia independently. The founders believed that by utilizing technology and business processes appropriately to build creative solutions, a great opportunity existed to increase the output of care from each dollar donated. Today, POL funds and runs projects in Zambia, Kenya and India targeted toward helping children infected with HIV or affected by the AIDS epidemic.

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'.
