The Fight Against Malaria

In many areas of the world, mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, but a vector for malaria, for which there is no vaccination , and s responsible for the death of thousands of people each year.

Our Organization What We Do?

Our purpose is to launch a worldwide campaign to stamp out malaria through the distribution of free anti-malaria mosquito nets.

Our vision and main priority is to provide one family with one mosquito net, which is so far the best way to combat malaria.

Eliminate Malaria as a way to ensure literacy and universal education.


Each and every dollar you contribute will go towards the purchase of family-sized insecticide-treated mosquito nets costing $10 each.

 

 

Although anti-malarial drugs can provide some protection against some strains of malaria, none are effective against all strains. For this reason, both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) highly recommend sleeping under a bed net to reduce contact with insects. The U.N. Says Mosquito netting Could Save 500,000

lives in Africa each year, according to the WHO, some 500 million people are infected with mosquito-borne illnesses: dengue, malaria, yellow fever, and various forms of encephalitis, including the West Nile virus. More than 2.5 million die, many of them young children. It is well established that using mosquito netting reduces the risk of malaria infection  a factor of 10 to 20.

“To accomplish great things, 
we must not only ACT, but
also DREAM; not only PLAN,
but also BELIEVE”
