KOM is here again! Volunteers needed

The Kick out Malaria (KOM) is a signature program of The Iba – Malaria Eradication Foundation and is designed to commemorate the annual UN World Malaria Day. Since 2002, the project has reached hundreds of thousands of people and has been implemented in 5 communities in Lagos State. It has been sponsored by Exxon Mobil, Red Cross Society, Lagos State Ministries of Health and Environment, The Nation Newspaper etc. The program has also won local and international awards such as the National Youth Service Corps Awards, SET Africa Awards, and the Commonwealth Youth Awards (African Section). It has been attended by the US Consul General, Mr. Jeffery Hawkins and will be attended by members of the German community this year. The project involves distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Nets, Environmental Clean Up Exercise, distribution of anti-malarial drugs, education of community members and/or installation of waste bins.

This year’s program will hold at Abule Oja, Yaba on April 25th. It will start by 7am (because of environmental sanitation exercise) and will end by 2noon.

 

Volunteers are needed to participate in all the stages of the exercise. There will be a prior meeting to talk about duties in details. Capable people passionate about community development work who can be committed are needed.
