Malaria Bites Fundraiser ($7 Donation Is All It Takes)

Califan007 The Constipated

Recommended Posts

Photographycorner.com is running a Malaria Bites fund raiser in connection with the Canadian Red Cross which will purchase insecticide-treated mosquito nets for school children and families in Liberia.

Even though malaria is preventable and treatable, it currently threatens over 40 per cent of the world's population. The majority of deaths from malaria are young children and pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa. There is no vaccine against malaria; the best defence is prevention.

The most proven and cost-effective way to prevent malaria is by sleeping under a long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN). LLINs provide a protective barrier around families at night and kill malaria-carrying mosquitoes on contact when they are most likely to strike. A single net can protect one or more children for up to five years.

The goal set was for 200 nets at $7 each (with the exchange rate, that's only about $5.65 in US dollars). While we're almost at this goal it wouldn't hurt to surpass the goal and leave it in the rearview mirror. One net @ $7 dollars would be great if you can spare it.
