Stanbic Bank Botswana donated BWP 100 000.00 towards the  Rotary Club of Gaborone’s project to supply the shortfall of Long Lasting  Insecticide Treated Mosquito Nets (LLIN’s) as stated by the Ministry Health in  their Malaria Eradication Programme.
Malaria is prevalent in over 100 countries in the world. It is thought to result in the death of a million people every year. Every 30 seconds a child somewhere will die of the disease.

In Africa, about 60% of all hospital admissions are malaria related. 1 in 20 children die before the age of 5.

The disease is preventable and curable.

The Rotary Club of Gaborone has made a commitment that they together with partners such as Stanbic Bank, other Rotary clubs and organisations will support the Ministry of Health Programme to try and Eradicate Malaria.

The club in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Charlotte donated LLIN’s to the Ministry of Health in July 2010. This was the catalyst for the present project.

Christopher Gwere of Stanbic Bank presented a cheque for BWP 100 000.00 to President William Lee of the Rotary Club of Gaborone. President William then presented the Public Relations Officer of Stanbic Bank, Ruth Modisane with a certificate of appreciation.
