Many of you visited our stand at the European Development Days on 15-16 June 2016, and participated to our quizz. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we appreciated your interest in IDAY’s work for the promotion of quality education in Africa.
After reviewing all the answers to the quizz, we are pleased to announce that the 3 winners are:
They answered all the questions correctly! Congratulations!
We will contact them individually to send them their prize: bags of Artemisia annua tea, for malaria protection during their future travels to malaria-prone countries.
IDAY supports the growing use of Artemisia annua to treat malaria in Africa and worldwide. Artemisia annua is a plant used by the Chinese for over 2,000 years. A repellent against the mosquito which carries the disease, it is also used to prevent malaria (one cup of tea a day for 9 days each month). The tea is a natural polytherapy containing compounds that act in synergy to fight malaria. It has no side effects, and the efficiency rate exceeds 90%.
Research conducted in the USA by Professor Pamela Weathers at the Worchester Polytechnic Institute on rodents has confirmed the superiority of the Artemisia annua natural treatment compared to medication and its lesser sensitivity to resistances.
