300 KAYAYEI SCREENED FOR MALARIA AT MALLAM ATTA MARKET
   News: Prudential News

Prudential Bank in conjunction with the Kayayei Association, Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation, and Medical Officers from the Pantang hospital have organized a Malaria screening for about 300 female porters (kayayei) and their children at the Mallam Atta market in Accra were on Sunday.

The kayaye were subsequently given different kinds of malaria medicines, treated mosquito nets as well as used clothes. The Accra Central Branch manager of Prudential Bank, Mrs. Anna C. Taylor, said her outfit decided to be part of the programme more especially to educate the women on how best to save money out of the little they make every day. She said findings have revealed that some of the kayaye are robbed by thieves who pick their daily sales from them simply because they do not have a place to save the small money they make in their daily activities. Mrs. Taylor noted that some of the porters also had their monies stolen by fake ‘Susu’ collectors adding that with this education the women can now take advantage to save a little few cedis and be able to take care of their wards as well. Speaking to the Times, the founder of the Kayayei Association, Mr. Michael Wepare, said his outfit together with other stakeholders decided to organize the programme to help address the health needs of the porters. He said in most cases, the women and their wards were left to their fate especially when they were sick. Besides, he said most of the women were sexually molested which often resulted in pregnancy but were also abandoned by the men who put them in that state. “We have, therefore, decided to assist these unfortunate ones in our small way to examine them for malaria and to give them medication”, he said. On her part, the Administrative Director of Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation, Madam Lois Okudzeto; said the exercise was a follow-up to a first exercise at the Nima market adding that it will be replicated in other markets where the porters are found. “Apart from the treatment, we also sensitize them on the mode of transmission of malaria and other sicknesses through uncleanliness”.
