A total 114 poor families from two villages received quality mosquito nets that day. The beneficiaries are poor farmers who work hard to meet their daily needs. Their houses are made of bamboo, mud walls and tin roof. Owing to unhygienic living, lack of sanitation facilities and rearing pigs too close to homes, many of them used to fall sick from mosquito borne illnesses.
Besides distributing mosquito nets, the diocese team also brought awareness among the villagers on malaria prevention.
Last year’s malaria outbreak claimed at least 6 lives and nearly 8,000 people were found infected with malaria across Tripura.
