Over 2000 children were reached by the Child Aid Bindura led education and immunisation campaign in 2011. The project together with the Ministry of Health and Child welfare embarked on an outreach mobile immunisation drive that saw parents from the remote parts of Shamva District coming with their children the get immunised.

 

Health officials said DAPP Child Aid is making phenomenal inroads in campaigning for immunization and advocacy for a reduction in child motality especially within the Apostolic sect members who by religous beliefs were against immunization of their children.

 

DAPP Child Aid project leader Stewart Nyauta said, “Through the relationships we establiseh with members of the comminuity we have managed to get through to some Apostolic sect members with education on the importance of vaccination of children"

 

He  added that  they however noted with great concern that a number of child headed households and grandparent headed households were not aware of the need for immunization but through the educational campaigns conducted by the project they are expecting a possitive repsonse from such households.

Nyauta said the project managed to also register 300 pregnant women for antenatal classes.

Child Aid Bindura has been in the for-front of spearheading campaigns that are in line with the Millennium development Goal number 4 of reducing child mortality through immunisation and food security programmes.
