Vestergaard-Frandsen and MalariaWorld support Kenyan children's home

September 26, 2010 - 23:00 -- Bart G.J. Knols

In June I was invited to take part in a discussion forum on global health in Breda, The Netherlands. Following my talk on malaria I was approached by a lady called Thea Bekkers, who got my attention with a gripping story about an orphanage in Kenya that she supports. In short, the home, which houses some thirty children is poorly resourced and in dire need of preventive tools against malaria. Nets. They simply needed nets.


It took one email to convince former Director Torben Vestergaard, who got the wheels spinning in their Nairobi office. Nets were despatched to the coastal region of Kenya, where the Baraka Children's home is situated.



Happy kids. At MalariaWorld we are proud to have organised this and thank the Vestergaard-Frandsen company for their generous support for these children.
