Mondi, the forestry company, built a compound of 28 houses and an Aids clinic to the community in Zululand, KZN. This then became known as Amangwe Village.
Shortly after opening the clinic, the Aids patients were getting Malaria from all the mosquitoes breeding in the contaminated water from the nearby sewage treatment works. Malaria is a debilitating disease that results in severe illness and sometimes death.
Avantu was called to deal with the problem. We implemented a dosing regimen to remedy the Sewerage Treatment Works, the contaminated water and the breeding of the mosquitoes.
Success! Amangwe village has had no more cases of Malaria since 2004. For over 16 years they have been using Avantu products: Pitking, Fatking and MozKing every month.
