In furtherance to its commitment to support efforts aimed at achieving total elimination of malaria in Nigeria, RB Nigeria Limited, a leader in health, hygiene and home care segment, through its number one insect-killer brand, Mortein, organized free malaria test in commemoration of the 2015 World Malaria Day in 15 Key locations PAN Nigeria.
Speaking at the event, the Marketing Director, RB West Africa, Oguzhan Silivrili, said Mortein has been at the forefront of the fight against malaria in Nigeria via a number of initiatives targeted at empowering Nigerians so that together we can defeat malaria. We believe malaria can be eliminated in Nigeria which is the reason Mortein owned by RB Nigeria is championing the cause for a malaria-free Nigeria.
He added that, “we are committed to achieving total elimination of malaria by creating awareness and educating Nigerians on the importance of protecting themselves from malaria because malaria is the number one killer of children in Africa,” he said.
One of the beneficiaries, Mr. Choji Pam commended Mortein for the initiative, “Mortein had educated us on the importance of protecting ourselves from malaria, and most of us did not know that malaria is capable of killing. However, with the help of Mortein we now know how to protect ourselves and family from mosquitoes”.
