PROJECT C19 NETS
While we fight the novel Corona Virus, risk of dengue, malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases loom large over the metropolitan city of Mumbai.
Fight the Bite partnered with Kavach, an NGO for women upliftment, to distribute mosquito nets with Kavach's maternity kits. These mosquito nets are for the babies borne to COVID 19 patients in the BMC wards.
Why mosquito nets?
Mosquito nets effectively offer protection against bites and stings from mosquitos. The new born babies are not only at risk of getting deadly mosquito borne diseases, but also the virus. While the latter cannot be prevented, the babies can still be protected from the mosquitos!
Over 200 nets have been distributed to hospitals in Mumbai. These mosquito nets are also being distributed to the Adivasis
