Distribution of treated mosquito nets in households at Rhino camp and Imvepi refugee settlements under Arua district has generated excitement among the refugees.

According to the beneficiary refugees, household members were initially forced to pile on beds and sleep in groups in order to share the few nets that they received on arrival.

Malish Allan, a South Sudanese refugee in Siripi settlement is not happy with the way the nets which were distributed previously by the various partners have been used. He says some have been using them as ropes for roofing their houses and others sell them too.

Obitre Harold the acting district malaria focal person encourages the beneficiaries to use the nets correctly to protect against malaria.

The district intends to follow up the distribution by educating the beneficiaries on the proper way of hanging up the nets on the roofs. End
