“During the rainy season my children usually suffer from malaria twice. When they suffer, or a close relative suffers from malaria, I have to stop everything to help care for him or her. That means all our farm and community activities are affected,’’ says Fatou Touray.

“Children don’t like medicines and are always afraid but we still give them the SMC drugs. It has reduced the burden of malaria in my house and family at large. My children are not even suffering from malaria anymore thanks to the SMC medicines.”
