On April 20th, 2013 I held a malaria education event in my town to commemorate World Malaria Month. Back in December, the entire southeast region received a distribution of free mosquito nets, thanks to USAID and other partners, and so I wanted to do a "follow-up" event to teach people how to use and care for their nets properly. After receiving SPA funds to hold the event, I worked with the mayor and two other local volunteers to make it happen. We set up a booth in front of the local post office and got to work conducting demonstrations on how to repair holes in nets, how to tuck them into a bed properly, and how to wash and dry them so that the impregnated insecticide doesn't get washed away. We involved the crowd in each of these demonstrations, recruiting a participant from our growing audience each time, and we were also joined by Max, a health worker from one of the town's hospitals. This event was one of the most rewarding things I have done as a Peace Corps volunteer!
