On January 5, 2012, Bishop Mwita Akiri gave more mosquito nets to the clergy and catechists for their children. Many of the clergy and catechists in this new and young diocese earn very little stipend or nothing at all and struggle to buy medicine when their children suffer from malaria attacks, which can occur frequently. Sleeping under treated mosquito nets goes a long way to reducing malaria among the children and adults as well. As it is often said, 'prevention is better then cure.' The funds for the mosquito nets were donated by individual Christians in various churches in the Diocese of Wellington, New Zealand. The Diocese of Tarime owes them a great deal. Archdeacon Bernard Faull who is both the Registrar and the Administrator of Wellington coordinated the appeal shortly after Bishop Mwita's visit to New Zealand in July and August 2011. This is the third time that the Bishop has given the mosquito nets to the priests and catechists since May 2011, and concludes the first phase of project. The second phase will now target low-income mothers with babies and young children. One treated mosquito net (bed net) costs between $4-5.
