Feed the Children - Fighting Malaria in Uganda
Headquartered in Suffield, Connecticut, Windsor Marketing Group provides a holistic in-store marketing approach to help businesses understand their customers and boost sales. Active in charitable giving, Windsor Marketing Group has participated in the Bozzuto Memorial Charity Classic to benefit a number of charitable organizations, including Feed the Children.
In addition to distributing food to children around the world, Feed the Children contributes to the fight against malaria in Uganda. In August 2016, the Ugandan branch of Feed the Children distributed mosquito nets treated with insecticide in the Twonokun village of the Gulu district, where malaria has been difficult to prevent in children.
Feed the Children partnered with Apolo Grace, a local health officer, to educate the public on the importance of using treated mosquito nets to prevent malaria. This work furthered the efforts of Uganda’s Ministry of Health to increase access to treated mosquito nets, which last longer and are more cost-effective than untreated nets.
Through these efforts, Feed the Children hopes to prevent one of the most harmful diseases in Uganda.
