We are three 17-year-old called Molly, Denise and Nabeeha and currently studying that the Luanda International School. Recently, we have been planning an expedition trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the tallest mountain in Africa in order to raise money to buy malaria preventative medicine and tests to give to a public hospital in Luanda.
Malaria is a reoccurring cause of child mortality in Angola. According to the World Health Organization, it reported almost 3,000 deaths due to malaria in just the first quarter of 2016. In recent years, the number of deaths has been increasing, from 5,550 in 2014 to 8,000 in 2015. For a poor family, there are faced with high costs for treatment when a loved one contracts it. Luckily, malaria has a relatively cheap method for sustainable prevention. We are also working with a company called PSI (Population Services International) which are based in Angola. This company will help us distribute the medicine and tests to the public hospital in Luanda.
Our goal is to raise around 500,000 kwanza in order purchase malaria medicine and tests. If you would like to help support this cause and donate, below is a link available to anyone who wishes to donate.
