World Malaria Day 2022: itel Partners With Amatem Softgel To End Malaria In Agboyi-Ketu

itel Nigeria and Amatem Softgel on April 25, 2022, joinedthe rest of the world to commemorate global efforts to bring an end to malaria, especially among African children and pregnant women.

More than 3.3 billion people in 106 counties are at risk of malaria, and according to the World Malaria Report 2020, Nigeria alone accounts for 27% of the malaria burden and 23% of malaria deaths worldwide, and children under the age of 5 remain the most vulnerable population to the disease.

Recognised for its outstanding services to Nigerians through its Love Always On CSR Initiative, itel has shown its continuous interest in impacting lives in the low-income communities surrounding it over the years.

So, it is no surprise that the mobile phone, home appliances, accessories, and laptops manufacturer partnered with Amatem Softgel, a leading anti-malaria drug in Nigeria, once again. This they did to fulfil this year’s World Malaria theme of “Harnessing innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives”.

itel and Amatem Softgel joined hands together to donate, among other relief materials, anti-malarial mosquito nets, free medical tests, and mosquito repellent creams to more than 1,500 families in the Agboyi Ketu area of Lagos State.

Known for its relentless support towards children’s education and growth, itel also extended its love to the children in the community by donating educational materials such as notebooks, mathematical sets, stationery, and other materials to aid their love for learning.
