Description

Ask a question

In 2018, there were over 228 million cases of malaria and over 405,000 deaths, most of whom were children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. Millions of people living in malaria-stricken countries like Zambia lack the proper equipment needed to protect themselves from malaria-transmitting mosquitoes during dusk and dawn when they are most active. In Africa, malaria also drains around 25% of a family’s income due to increased healthcare spending and is responsible for around half of all school absenteeism. Families and children need mosquito nets to protect their health, advance their education and reduce additional health costs.

Importance Importance

Malaria has killed millions of people around the world, but the WHO also estimates that around 20% of all malaria deaths are caused by people taking bad drugs in order to recover, as many malaria victims are too poor to receive proper anti-malaria medication. Providing mosquito nets to families and children allows them to protect themselves from getting malaria while they sleep while also decreasing the number of people who die due to bad drugs. These extremely effective mosquito nets would dramatically reduce the enormous number of people who suffer and die from malaria every year.
