“I’m not sure what’s happening. I just heard he died. We were friends. He was a really good dancer. We would have fun dancing together.”

“The goal here is to kill mosquitoes and other insects that cause disease.

It’s really important. Malaria killed a member of my own family.”
Mohammed Abbas, orange gloves, Nigeria
