Achol is a refugee from South Sudan and a mother of four. She fled her home the night her husband was killed. She traveled on foot for seven days over difficult terrain with her youngest in her arms to reach Kakuma refugee camp.
At one point along the way she was separated from her eldest daughter and has not seen her since. She worries about her son and two remaining daughters as many children in the camp have had malaria and some have even died.
Despite her exhaustion, she is among the first to line up the morning that insecticide-treated bed nets, provided by Nothing But Nets supporters, are being given out to refugee families.
She smiles big when she receives the bed nets that will protect her little ones from this deadly disease. Though many challenges remain ahead, that night Achol slept peacefully for the first time in many weeks, as she knows malaria-carrying mosquitoes will no longer touch her family.Help Now
