Our May 1% will buy malaria nets for 8,800 people with Against Malaria. That’s providing net coverage to 17 entire villages!
Each net lasts three years so we’ll be providing over 8 million nights of sleep, safe from the bites of disease-carrying mosquitoes that would otherwise cause severe illness, or worse.
Malaria kills half a million people every year and 400 million fall ill. Before bed nets were made available, it was three or more times that. Nets are a proven intervention – a more effective a way of saving lives than any other.
