Artemisia packing in the Making More Health house and first planting result

Artemisia infusion helping against malaria

Recently, in the Making More Health house and in 4 more locations in Western Kenya our Artemisia farming training has started.

Some of the of trained people from our albinism communities, but also other smallholder farmers have already started and the first results are visible. the Artemisia plants are fragile and continuous care is needed. Who wants to learn more can watch this video from our partner La Maison de l’Artemisia.

Soon the first Artemisia plants will be ready for transplanting

Shared knowledge pays off

Our trainees are very active and share in a chat room their results and questions – about growth and when to transplant, about soil issues and natural pesticides…

“Does anyone know about this plant?” asks a participant and shares a picture. “I would like to make sure it is suitable with Artemisia, both in terms of “agriculture” and toxicity for the future medicine.”

The farming training and awareness about Artemisia as an anti malaria plant has been launched during the World Malaria Day a few weeks back. Everyone got also some already grown and dried Artemisia leaves to be able to start to prepare the infusion right now.

Our community members prepare the Artemisia packages with care

For those who could not join that day our community members in the MMH house had now engaged again in packaging and distributing first rations so that all can prepare the anti malaria infusion at home and protect themselves and their beloved.
