We hear the word cancer and we get a shiver down our spine. We find out that a friend or family member has cancer and we tremble knowing there’s a good chance they won’t live. In Africa, this cancer is Malaria. But, unlike cancer, Malaria is preventable and treatable. Then why is it killing so many people? Of the million people in Africa who die of Malaria each year, most of them are small children.
Here in the United States, we eradicated Malaria back in 1951. It’s completely treatable if it’s caught early. But, as we know prevention is the best cure. Malaria is carried by mosquitoes. These mosquitoes feed mostly at night while families and young children sleep. The best way to prevent night-time bites from disease-carrying mosquitoes is to cover the beds with bed nets. These nets are only $10. They could cover a bed where there’s only one infant or there may well be several children in that bed that are then all protected by the bed net.
Mosquito Squad is partnering with Malaria No More to help eradicated Malaria in Africa. We are helping to raise $30,000 in 30 days but we need your help. A bed net that could save one life or a whole family’s life is only $10.
