Woodbridge-Perth Amboy Rotarian Francoise “Riisa” Kauzya, who is from Uganda, mentioned a district in Uganda in need of medical attention and supplies for World Malaria Day, April 25, 2023. Riisa's appeal to Woodbridge-Perth Amboy Rotarians for support was approved. Her success on both shores was a success for Nyabushenyi Health Center II, Uganda, Sub Saharan Africa.
According to a report issued annually by the World Health Organization (WHO) malaria continues to claim more than six hundred thousand lives per year. 
The WHO launched the 2022 World Malaria Day Campaign,World Malaria Day 2023 on the theme, “Time to deliver zero malaria: invest, innovate, implement.” No single tool that is available today will solve the problem of malaria. WHO is calling for investments and innovation that bring new vector control approaches, diagnostics, antimalarial medicines and other tools to speed the pace of progress against malaria.
“Community leaders were again an important part of the effort we made in Uganda this year,” commented Riisa, who ensured that funds were used in Uganda to provide supplies directly to the camp.  “They must own it to make any progress in eliminating malaria,” she said.
