- Thursday 13th October – Bible Speaks Seventh Day Adventist Church (5:30 pm – 7:30 pm)
- Friday 14th October – Cashew Hill Moravian Church (5:30 pm – 7:30 pm)
During these seminars, attendees will be educated on ways to reduce mosquito vectors, as well as the consequences of illegal dumping and how to report illegal dumping.
Attendees of the seminars from the relevant communities will be provided with climate-smart mosquito traps free of cost on attending these seminars.
It is anticipated that after this intervention that the communities will experience fewer mosquito borne diseases and a benefit from a reduction in illegal littering and dumping.
In order to benefit from these mosquito traps, attendees should be living in and around the communities of Cashew Hill and McKinnons.
