2016 is the Year of the Mosquito Net for Farmers Helping Farmers!

Farmers Helping Farmers will hand out almost 2,000 mosquito nets at our twinned schools in Kenya in 2016.  

The nets are $10 each, making our fundraising target $20,000 to ensure every child who needs a net will get one.

Our supporters - through the Holiday Campaign - have already contributed more than $6,000 towards the nets. Thank you, asante, for those donations.  We are now launching a fundraising campaign in 2016 to pay for the rest. 

During their visit to Kenya in January 2016, nursing students from UPEI will conduct home and school visits to determine family and child health status and provide treatments and advice toward disease prevention, including de-worming, hand-washing hygiene and preventing malaria.

Retired nurse Nancy MacFadyen will accompany the group who will also be distributing mosquito nets at the 11 twinned schools in the Meru area.
