Defeat a Mosquito Campaign
Irmie Bush, 2006 TDA participant and mother of our tour doctor Luke Bush, donated 520 insecticide treated nets (ITNs) to the World Vision charity in Choma, Zambia. Three days prior, Irmie donated 1,500 INTs to the Mazibuko community who were recently affected by floods. In 2006, the Defeat-a-Mosquito campaign was set up and the Metropolitan Health Group sponsored Irmie per kilometer from Ethiopia. With the money raised in 2006, Irmie was able to purchase 800 ITNs which were distributed to the villages of Chainda and Matero in April 2007. Wishing to do more after the tour, Irmie had the idea to create a calendar with pictures collected from 2006 TDA riders and sell the calendars to raise money for the Defeat-a-Mosquito campaign. The calendars raised over 16,000USD. If you wish to donate, purchase a calendar or would like more information regarding the Defeat-a-Mosquito campaign, please visit www.africadream.co.za or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
