Kate Henshaw joins fight against malaria
Kate Henshaw has added to her charitable gestures by pledging to be an advocate of malaria awareness.
The Nollywood actress made the commitment on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at an event organised in Lagos to proffer solutions in combating the terminal disease.
‘In those days, people spoke about malaria as if it belonged to them with expressions like ‘I have malaria,’ ‘my malaria’ and ‘ordinary malaria.’ Surprisingly, after many years, these terms are still common place among family members, colleagues, and friends, irrespective of class or level of education,’ Henshaw said.
Henshaw voiced her support for National Malaria Elimination Programme and the Society for Family Health in their fight against malaria with a 2020 target date for eliminating up to 80% of current cases.
