NetsforLife

The Anglican Church in southern Angola is heavily involved in anti malaria campaigning activity. It is working with NetsforLife®, “a partnership of corporations, foundations, NGOs and faith-based organizations brought together by their commitment to eliminating malaria in sub-Saharan Africa”. NetsforLife®, managed by the US organisation Episcopal Relief & Development in 15 countries and by Christian Aid in two, implements its programmes through local Anglican dioceses, churches and faith-based groups. It mobilises community volunteers to distribute anti mosquito nets and teach people how to prevent and treat malaria. Participating churches have up to ten outstations in remote areas with women and youth networks that, when trained, become powerful activists in their own communities. Fr Elias Mbala and church workers in Ondjiva and Namacunde are actively involved in the NetsforLife® anti malaria programme.
