MALARIA KILLS

By Mudadi Saidi

As the world is facing the big huddle of reducing the risks of covid-19 also known us Corona Virus, today is the day of a disease that has cost the lives of so many children across the globe. As it is well known, malaria is transmitted through bites of an infected female Anopheles mosquito and sleeping under a treated mosquito net is therefore very important. According to statistics, malaria kills 440,000 people worldwide, and most cases are found in Africa with infections of approximately 210 million every year.

In the event your child has fever, chills, headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle pain, fatigue, chest pains and cough, don’t confuse that for Covid-19. Be responsible. Rush your child to the nearest health facility and have them tested and treated. It should be remembered that children are the most vulnerable and every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.

According to doctors, after being bitten by an infected female Anopheles mosquito, the symptoms can be developed after 7 days. Malaria can therefore be controlled if the necessary preventive and precautionary measures are taken. You can choose to apply a mosquito repellent on your body and clothes, and where clothes that cover the body before going to bed. The best and most preferred precautionary measure is sleeping under a treated mosquito net.

There is no vaccine for malaria but it can be prevented and controlled when people take measures to protect themselves and their young ones. Kakuma clinics record many malaria cases and every year 10% of patients lose their lives to the disease. The recorded reason behind the many deaths is that, people take advantage of self-treatment at home, and only rush to the hospital when the situation worsens.

Today as the world celebrates World Malaria Day, community workers from World Merit Kakuma took advantage to mobilize the community and informed them on how to control Malaria.

School closures impact not only students, teachers, and families but have far-reaching economic and societal consequences. School closures in response to the pandemic have shed light on various social and economic issues, including student debt, digital learning, food insecurity, and homelessness, as well as access to childcare, health care, housing, internet, and disability services. The impact was more severe for disadvantaged children and their families, causing interrupted learning, compromised nutrition, childcare problems, and consequent economic cost to families who could not work.

Many of the priorities of SDG3 (good health and well-being) are relevant for the surge response and recovery from COVID-19. This is why the U.N. has called the pandemic “an opportunity for the human family to act in solidarity” to achieve the SDGs. So the SDGs actually provide the agenda for a sustainable global response to COVID-19—sustainable in that the response to this emergency should not lead to a neglect of the critical elements for equitable, affordable health care for all.

In light of the pandemic’s effects on the food and agricultural sector, prompt measures are needed to ensure that food supply chains are kept alive to mitigate the risk of large shocks that have a considerable impact on everybody, especially on the poor and the most vulnerable

25/09/2020

Even before COVID-19 the world was off track to end poverty by 2030 under SDG 1, with projections suggesting that 6% of the global population would still be living in extreme poverty in 2030. Now, an estimated 71 million additional people could be living in extreme poverty due to COVID-19. Although income inequality has been falling in some countries, a global economic recession in the wake of the pandemic could push millions back into poverty and aggravate inequalities.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected. Often, the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. The SDGs are an inclusive agenda. They tackle the root causes of poverty and unite us together to make a positive change for both people and planet.

secure.changa.co.ke Hey guys I've started a fundraiser on M-Changa to raise funds for Covid-19 Outreach Program.

[06/13/20]   Today being International Albinism Awareness Day, it is important we understand what Albinism is, and why we need to care.

Albinism is a rare, non-contagious, genetically inherited difference present at birth. In almost all types of albinism, both parents must carry the gene for it to be passed on, even if they do not have albinism themselves. The condition is found in both sexes regardless of ethnicity and in all countries of the world. Albinism results in a lack of pigmentation (melanin) in the hair, skin and eyes, causing vulnerability to the sun and bright light. As a result, almost all people with albinism are visually impaired and are prone to developing skin cancer. There is no cure for the absence of melanin that is central to albinism.

While numbers vary, it is estimated that in North America and Europe 1 in every 17,000 to 20,000 people have some form of albinism. The condition is much more prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, with estimates of 1 in 1,400 people being affected in Tanzania and prevalence as high as 1 in 1,000 reported for select populations in Zimbabwe and for other specific ethnic groups in Southern Africa.

Health challenges of people living with albinism

The lack of melanin means persons with albinism are highly vulnerable to developing skin cancer. In some countries, a majority of persons with albinism die from skin cancer between 30 and 40 years of age. Skin cancer is highly preventable when persons with albinism enjoy their right to health. This includes access to regular health checks, sunscreen, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing. In a significant number of countries, these life-saving means are unavailable or inaccessible to them. Consequently, in the realm of development measures, persons with albinism have been and are among those “left furthest behind.” Therefore, they ought to be targeted for human rights interventions in the manner envisioned by the Sustainable Development Goals.

What if we all decide to follow government directives? What if we take individual responsibility in the fight against #covid 19? By washing our hands more often, staying at home and leave only when necessary, wearing a mask in public and keeping social distance. Then, we will have helped in reducing the number of new infections and in the long run the curve will flatten.
And what does that mean 🤷🏽‍♀️, we go back to living normal lives and continue making the world a better place than we found it.
So take charge, take responsibility and let's fight this enemy, covid-19 💪🏾💪🏾

“Coronaviruses are not particularly tough. Soap and water, used properly, will dislodge the virus from your hands and can destroy their outer surface area. Wet your hands under running water (can be warm or cold), apply soap, lather your hands well and scrub all over, then rinse your hands under running water for at least 20 seconds.
Alcohol based hand sanitizers should also kill the new corona virus. However, make sure your hand sanitizer actually has at least 60% alcohol (many do not). Hand sanitizer really should be secondary to washing your hands with soap. In some situations (when you’re in public) it isn’t possible to wash your hands, and sanitizer can then be helpful. Most of us should now be staying home and should have access to soap and water. Also, try to not touch your face. This can be difficult but with practice you can reduce the frequency and duration of face touching.”
