Ms. Cicilia Prosy is a 22 years old pregnant mother with three children between 3 and 6yrs old and 3 other orphans living in a small village of Matu. Since she lost her husband, she decided to settle in the bush so that she can practice agriculture on a small scale to feed her children and the orphans unlike in the refugee camps where there is not enough land and sometimes no food rations are received for months.She had to say this on receiving her mosquito net and basic health training
“Today I am very excited to receive this mosquito nets in my family – it’s like a Christmas day to me because since I got married, I have never received such a wonderful gifts. My family members have been suffering from severe malaria, typhoid fever, pneumonia, intestinal worms, and skin diseases and I barely had no money to treat them because I lost my husband recently in Liwolo when I am 2 months pregnant. So I have been treating my children with local herbs.
I am now very HAPPY because the mosquito nets I received today with the knowledge is going to prevent my family members from being bitten by mosquitoes – meaning my family members are free from malaria.” A HUGE thank you to Cress UK for your support in saving the lives of my children from malaria, May God bless you!”
Out of Prosy’s three children, she can only afford to pay the school fee of one child – meaning others are not in school. Lulu, CRESS Clinic’s nurse was so shocked to enter in her bedroom, just a torn mattress on the ground with no bed or mosquito net. He thinks receiving the mosquito net and having the training are a great achievement for her.
