- Every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.
- Malaria is a preventable disease.
- Ten dollars buys a long lasting net that protects a child for 3-5 years.
Today is World Malaria Day a worldwide concerted effort to bring awareness to the world of the seriousness of the malaria. Most of us don’t have to worry about every contracting this disease, but that’s not the case for over three million children and pregnant mothers in Sub-Saharan Africa. And, most of the time, a simple bed net can prevent this disease. You can help prevent the spread of malaria by purchasing a net through us. Or, make your voice heard by joining the commitment to ensure that everyone in malaria-affected regions has access to essential prevention and treatment services on the World Malaria Day 2009 site. Please help support our efforts, this year we will be distributing 2000 bed nets in Mbita and our annual Health Education Day will be held next week.
