Dangers in India: Mosquitoes

Posted by | No Comments

Because of heavy rainfall and floods during the rainy season, water tends to stand and stagnate. Poor drainage and bad roads contribute towards a very fertile environment for deadly mosquitoes. During this season, a lot of people are attacked with Malaria, Chikungunya, Dengue fever, etc, because of the mosquitoes.

ICM conducted awareness training in the villages during the season, encouraging people to use nets, coils, liquids, and creams. It included the proper clothing to wear. They also gave training on how to discourage mosquitoes from breeding by clearing out stagnant water pools that are near the home. Pamphlets were also given out at each of these seminars.
