Led by Moses Kiti and the Rotary Club of Kilifi, the latest round of deworming took place on July 12, 2012. The launch of the program started at Masemo Primary School at 9 a.m. with various stakeholders in attendance, including the Kenyan Ministries of Health and Education, and will continue to 82 other primary schools across the Ganze and Vitengeni provinces in the Kilifi District. On the following day (July 13), there was a follow-up session for any child who missed the initial drug administration. It is expected that 29,000 students received a deworming tablet in last week’s campaign.
A giant thanks to all of those who have supported this work, including our partners, volunteers, and donors. We are excited to continue this important work, now in our fifth year, and help so many children have healthier and happier lives free of disease!
