In Ratones, PMF Mirim Vigilante fights Aedes aegypti mosquitoes

This Thursday (9), in the fight against Aedes aegypti, the Vigilante Mirim project, from Florianópolis City Hall, will be in two educational units of the municipal educational network in Ratones, north of the island. At 8 a.m., the Department of Education team will discuss this topic with children from the Hermenegild Carolina Jacques Center for Early Education.

At 9:30 and 14:00, it will be the turn of the project in Escola do Futuro Mâncio Costa for a talk and video exhibition with the fourth graders of the primary school.

The idea is to transform children and adolescents into multiplying agents of actions and attitudes in order to prevent the reproduction of mosquitoes responsible for dengue, zika virus and chikungunya. Aedes aegypti reproduces in places with clean, non-carbonated water.

“If everyone replicates the information to family and friends, the victory against mosquitoes is getting closer and closer,” said Charles Schnorr, education’s prevention coordinator.

Vigilante Mirim has already visited 10 educational units, including kindergartens and schools. The project is in partnership with the Municipal Department of Health and Support of the Municipal Civil Defense, Municipal Guard and Scientific Police (former IGP).
