The Car Wash Boys explain how malaria affects them

This World Malaria Day, we’re sharing inspiring stories of some of the incredible progress being made by communities that are harnessing people power to fight malaria.

People like the Car Wash Boys, who are part of a project run by On Our Radar. The project, which is supported by the Comic Relief and GSK partnership, trains people to become citizen journalists, to find and share powerful stories about how malaria affects their and other people’s lives.

The Car Wash Boys work outside throughout the night in Sierra Leone. Exposed to mosquitoes, they get malaria regularly. But if they’re sick and miss work they won’t get the money they rely on to feed themselves and their families.
