A MINE FREE WORLD GIANT GARAGE SALE PROVIDES 850 MOSQUITO NETS FOR RURAL CAMBODIA

Prokeab Mosquito Net Distribution

Director Om Chamnap Of Banyan Learning Tree Provides a net in Prokeab village 

The 7th Annual July 2012 Giant Garage Sale held in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada raised over $5,150 which provided 850 rural Cambodian families with much-needed family-size mosquito nets. Families in 30 villages in 5 communes received this valuable protection against Malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases. Malaria cases have been on the increase in many countries, with Cambodia having the most drug resistant strain.
