The mosquito net distribution, conducted by MOL Director Blaud Mondesire, began at 2 p.m., Sunday, February 12th and lasted nearly three hours as hundreds came from Jolivert and 10 other surrounding villages and mountain communities.
As the crowds began to gather at the MOL gate, each were organized into groups with their community leaders, and were given anti-malaria education and instructions on how to properly us the nets by MOL Nurse, Edline Beaubrun. By the end of the distribution 550 colorful nets had been given to the selected families. Given the choice of a blue, rose, yellow or white net, the most favored color of all was rose. Why? Simply because the next day was Valentines Day!
The remaining mosquito nets were installed over beds on the MOL Campus and distributed the following day to the absentee families.
