Mosquito Nets Save Lives From Malaria

Quick Description

Malaria is the 2nd leading cause of death from diseases in Africa, after HIV/AIDS. Over half a million people die from malaria every year, mostly children younger than five years old. Only about 5% of children sleep under a net, and every day 3,000 children die from the disease.

The provision and use of insecticide-treated nets significantly reduces the chances of contracting malaria. Many homes do not have these nets and Develop Africa is working with local partners to ensure that this simple, inexpensive and life-changing protection is provided to all.

We provide families with long-lasting nets that reduce exposure to mosquito bites and the killer disease of malaria. We also educate them on the importance of daily use. The nets are particularly beneficial for the protection of children who are less resistant to malaria.

To date, we have provided thousands of nets and are hoping to provide tens of thousands of nets in the next 2-3 years.

Your donation of $10 will buy one treated mosquito bed net for a child. Help save a life and destiny today!
