Zambia is among the 20 countries with the highest malaria incidence and mortality globally. Most families living in resource poor neighborhoods, are vulnerable to malaria but do not have the information on how to prevent malaria or the resources to purchase mosquito bed nets.
Project Mosquito Net
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy March! In Zambia, transmission rates for malaria are high throughout the country. To keep vulnerable families malaria free, 3,000 insecticide treated nets were provided in rural and urban areas in Zambia. Nets provision was preceded by a demonstration and education session, and all activities were completed in a safe manner.
Dear Friend: Happy holidays! Looking back 2020 has been a tough year.
Dear Friend: Happy World AIDS Day! Every year, December 1 is designated to support adults and children living with HIV, and to pledge to continue the fight against HIV and AIDS. We believe that together we can end AIDS. In Zambia, only 59% of all people living with HIV have undetectable viral loads; this number must be increased to 75% for the epidemic to end.
As a result of the generosity of an anonymous donor, we were able to provide clean cooking stoves and education to vulnerable families in Zambia. Over the last four winter months, 1000 families have benefitted from the provision of clean cooking stoves. Family members love their new stoves as these keep them warm, cook food faster, and save money on fuel.
Dear Friend: Hope you are staying safe from Corona virus. This virus has had a disproportionately higher impact on low income populations and countries.
Dear Friend: Happy June!
Dear Friend: Hope you and your loved ones are staying safe from the COVID-19 virus. As many of us continue to work from the safety of our homes, we are reminded that it's a privilege to have a safe shelter, ample food, and good health care. However, this is not true for most families we work with in Zambia and India.
Dear Power of Love Friend: We hope this finds you well as we face the uncertainties posed by COVID-19. As always, the poor and vulnerable will be hardest hit by this global pandemic, and the implications for our partners, women and children are huge. We will remain by their sides, support one another, and face challenges. We're all in this together.
