Tomorrow the Nothing But Nets campaign will team up with 20 NBA players, Legends and coaches to start the distribution of 20,000 life-saving bed nets in Rufisque, Senegal, a small town outside the capital, Dakar.
This distribution effort is part of a universal coverage campaign here in Senegal – meaning one net for every sleeping space.
So today we traveled to Rufisque to join the community health workers as they surveyed the community, traveling house to house, family to family, to record the number of sleeping spaces and, thus, the number of nets needed.
Over the course of the day I was able to learn about Les Trois Toutes!
Toute la famille
Toutes les nuits
All of the family
All of the year
All of the night
This campaign slogan is being promoted throughout Senegal as the country takes huge strides toward combatting malaria.
