For a kid, what’s more thrilling than pitching a tent and having a summer campout in the backyard? Not much. The sheer act of sleeping under a piece of pitched fabric allows imaginations to run wild, rules to be bent, and magic to happen.
In Africa, tents—often disguised as mosquito nets—allow for magic too.
A type of magic that’s a bit different.
The type that saves lives.
Each and every day 10,000 kids in Africa die of malaria—a curable, treatable disease. One of the easiest ways to prevent malaria is to ensure that each and every child has the privilege of sleeping under a $10 mosquito net. Along with increasing education and early treatment, Malaria No More is committed to providing every child in Africa with a safe sleeping space.
If it’s difficult for you to hop on the next plane to Botswana and start passing out nets, take one of these simple steps and do your part to support Malaria No More’s goal to eradicate this disease by 2015.
