Connecting and educating to eradicate malaria

Woodbridge-Perth Amboy Rotarian Francoise “Riisa” Kauzya, who is from Uganda, mentioned a district in Uganda in need of medical attention and supplies. When her appeal in April of 2019 to Woodbridge-Perth Amboy Rotarians for $300 was approved, Riisa was encouraged to ask Ugandan Rotarians to match her request to help purchase malaria testing kits and medication for 350 people at a camp scheduled for World Malaria Day, April 25th.  Her success on both shores was a success for Nyabushenyi Health Center II, Uganda, Sub Saharan Africa.
