Across the globe, to celebrate World Malaria Day we highlight successes in the fight against malaria and the responsibility we all have to end malaria within a generation and urge leaders to step up the fight and get us closer to a malaria-free world. GraceStation foundation marked this day by organizing a health awareness program for twenty-four (24) of its beneficiaries. 

Dr Roland Eghan, a general practitioner, sensitized them on Malaria- its causes, signs and symptoms and most importantly, its prevention. The participants were also given knowledge on specific drugs and treatment for Malaria. At the end of the event, beneficiaries departed with gift items including mosquito sprays.
