Malaria Desk

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia (ELCIN) Malaria Programme

Namibia is one of the four countries supported by LUCSA Malaria Programme. Malaria is still one of the major challenges especially in northern Namibia. The programme’s focusses include institutional capacity building, reduction of malaria morbidity and sustainable livelihoods. The LUCSA Diakonia Desk conducted technical support visit in February 2019 to three villages that are implementing the project.

A  Malaria community group at Eengonyo in Eenhana region purchased a plot and built a grinding room with their own resources. They later bought a grinding machine and the programme assisted them with half of the costs of the machine. The profits of this project are ploughed back into the project by providing assistance to those who need malaria treatment.
