Defending Against Bed Bugs

Attir Village, Kenya

 

Transformational Community Development (TCD) Wellness Committee Members are doing a great job within the Attir Village. The villagers are testifying about the good services that are being offered. When GHNI introduced TCD in Attir Village, the Wellness Committee Members supported pregnant women, including midwife services. This has really helped women during delivery. It has eased them since the only available hospital is more than 15km away. Wellness Committee Members also created awareness about disease outbreaks and other health issues, helping the community during COVID-19. One key project has focussed on eradicating bed-bugs, lice, and cockroaches, which are becoming a major health concern. The villagers were taught to boil water and spray it to their bedding and other areas. This has helped a lot. One local, Makelina, is now happy after being taught how to control it and thanks GHNI for helping the community.

 

Thank you,

Christopher
GHNI TCD Worker
