Malaria is listed as one of the world’s deadliest diseases. The reason for this is due in large part to poverty and lack of access to simple preventative measures. Mosquito Squad has been partnering with the Malaria No More organization for years to aid these impoverished areas. Through Malaria No More, just a $1 contribution provides a life-saving test and treatment for a child in Africa. This year Mosquito Squad of Columbia will donate $1 for every treatment we conduct. This means that for every treatment, every referral we receive, we will move closer and closer to our goal of doing our part to end Malaria’s awful reign of terror. Our goal is to donate $10,000 and in the process save 10,000 people’s lives.
Mosquito Squad of Columbia is committed to supporting Malaria No More – One Child at a TimeBelieve it or not, half of the world’s population is still at risk of being infected by Malaria. Annually there are well over 600,000 deaths attributed to Malaria with 90% of these deaths occurring in Africa. An even grimmer statistic shows that nearly 460,000 children whom did not survive were under the age of four.
With each treatment conducted by Mosquito of Columbia we will donate $1 dollar to the Malaria No More project. $1 saves one life.While many humanitarian aid groups and the World Health Organization have combated this disease, it still remains a formidable opponent. But thanks to these efforts, Malaria death rates have dropped by nearly 42% since 2000.
Nationally, Mosquito Squad has already saved well over 100,000 lives and has taken on the challenge of saving an additional 250,000 over the next three years. We at Mosquito Squad of Columbia have decided to take upon this challenge as well and to help save as many lives as we possibly can.
