Bengkulu Utara: Malaria Progamm

Today we went to North Bengkulu subdistrict of Bengkulu to monitor the American Red Cross Anti Malaria Programm. The ARC distributes Malaria nets and does training with local volunteers and PMI staff.

Each volunteer goes from house to house and visits about 60 homes in order to check on the status of mosquito nets and talks about preventive measures wit the people. Targeted people are pregnant woman, children and seniors.

The staff from the office in Bengkulu city checked on the progress, watched some of the local meetings.

The trip took us all day, because the road was not so great, but nevertheless very intresting.
