Our 'MOSQUITO NET AND BLANKET' CAMPAIGN


  • Malaria is one of the most major health problems in the area, especially for the children.

​​

  • The World Health Organisation have estimated that around 85% of the worldwide malaria fatalities occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. The great majority of this (around 90%) are of children under the age of 5.  

Malaria in Rwanda:


  • This has shockingly become the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. 


  • It has become responsible for up to 50% of all outpatient visits.


  • ​In 2005, Rwanda reported 991,612 malaria cases.


  • ​​In 2006, malaria became responsible for 37% of outpatient consultations and 41% of hospital deaths, of which 42% were children under five.

These are some of the children in the village of Gisenyi in Rwanda. They are very happy as they now have health insurance! The entire year for each of them is paid and covered for. This is all thanks to your generosity! These children can now happily play with one another without having to worry about the adult burden of hospital and medical expenses. 

As the Wall Rebuilders, we believe in both small and large acts of generosity. This is because such acts will make positive impacts to struggling and impoverished communities. We are striving to provide for the locals with necessary and fundamental home supplies. This includes the provision of warm blankets or cooking materials for instance. 

Health Insurance


Health insurance in Rwanda is regarded as very good. Treatment is available for Malaria at a relatively low cost of £10 per year per person. Malaria and other diseases are then provided with adequate treatment. However, it is sad to mention that only around 50% of the population are covered by this insurance. 

CHURCHES

  •  As we are the Wall Rebuilders charity, we were able to launch a helpful project in Gisenyi.


  • We were able to successfully fund health insurance for 40 children within the rural community!


  • Although it was a successful breakthrough, we wanted even more children to receive health insurance (as this was still less than half the number of children who needed it)


We would greatly appreciate it if you could help. We have provided a donations page with instructions on how to help us.
 

Malaria in Uganda:


  • Malaria is the leading cause of morbidity in Uganda.


  • It is responsible for up to 40% of all outpatient visits, 25% of all hospital admissions, and 14% of all hospital deaths.​​ 


  • Rural inhabitants contribute to 87% of the burden of this disease.

our 'provision of fundamental needs'

Our mosquito net and blanket campaign has enabled us to improve the living standards of many. Not only are we actively involved with busy villages, but we are also able to reach out to the rural areas of Uganda and Rwanda. As a result we able to distribute mosquito nets in high malaria areas.


It is a significant difference for these individuals to sleep inside a mosquito net. It is amazing at how such a provision can become life saving for many!

At the Wall Rebuilders, we recognise the importance of encouraging others to be self-dependent in their own finances and family provisions. We are aiming to support and provide the resources for many to generate their own income through our enterprise projects. We provide the locals with funding to implement their business ideas with the necessary resources. In East Africa, we are happy to of made some sewing machine donations already!

Donating is more than just money. It is an act of mercy and compassion in believing that the life of an individual can be improved through giving.

  • Throughout the setup of our earlier campaigns, we quickly learnt that many people were sleeping without proper bedding covers.


  • Many would find ways to keep themselves warm at night through the use of alternatives with plastic bin bags or their own clothes.



In order to address the points above, as well as the provision of nets, we have also decided to provide complementing blankets!
