Orphans & Vulnerable Children
IHP has partnered with Matré Group to provide health services to orphans and vulnerable children in the surrounding villages and schools. To learn more or to donate go to www.matregroup.org.
Founded in 2010, Matré Group is a private not-for-profit organization that provides healthcare services to orphaned, vulnerable children, and their caregivers to improve their health condition. Together, the IHP and Matré Group team installed 300 mosquito nets in homes and schools that house orphans and carry the health plan (2013).
IHP staff completed a survey assessment to determine the impact of the mosquito net project. Preliminary results show that most children share nets with others, doubling mosquito net protection and reducing the cases of malaria in these households by half (2015).
