Campanha de consciencialização da malária lançada pela Sonadiets na escola Kilungi Kiami

Segundo a Organização Mundial de Saúde, cerca de 90% dos casos mundiais de malária ocorrem na África Subsahariana. Em Angola, e em particular a província de Luanda, é uma das áreas mais afectadas.

No primeiro semestre de 2018, um novo surto da doença em Angola resultou em pelo menos 1,5 milhão de casos de malária e quase 4 mil mortes foram registradas. Este novo surto levou a Sonadiets – a joint venture entre a Dietsmann e a Sonangol, a lançar uma Campanha de Sensibilização de Malária com o tema “Luta contra a Malária”.
The campaign was launched on 5 September in the Kilungi Kiami Primary School in Luanda Cacuaco. The aim of the day’s activities was to increase awareness of this disease that is killing many children in Luanda province. The morning session focused on answering the children’s questions about malaria. The children’s parents were invited to attend the afternoon session which focused in particular on preventative measures including the use of mosquito nets.

At the end of the day everyone was given a copy of the Fight Against Malaria brochure and a mosquito net. School Chairman, Adão Fernando, School Director, Walo Armando, and the parents and children were delighted with the initiative which will help save lives. They thanked the SONADIETS management and in particular the Company’s Quality Coordinator, Edna Fernando, and HSEQ Manager, Sebastião Kinanga.
