    Zambia, Chikumbi: Bednet distribution


    by AgainstMalaria

    Chikumbi District is located about 30 miles north of Lusaka.

    The villages are:
    Nkaba, Chiewa, Katuba, Kasalu, Chimbetue, Ngobola, Kakuku, Mwachilwana, Manenekela, Molando, Lumina and Mwambi.

    Malaria illnesses and deaths are common. Anecdotal evidence suggests that every person in the village is affected at least once a year by malaria. Deaths are common due to lack of medical provision and drugs.

    This distribution aims to blanket cover the entire district. There are approximately 7,000 sleeping spaces in the villages.
