Mosquito Squad Commits to Saving 250,000 Children From Malaria Over the Next 3 Years

Every minute one child dies from Malaria.

In the time that you started reading this blog post, another child in Africa has passed from Malaria – the disease that’s one of the top 3 killers of kids worldwide. These statistics are even harder to fathom given that Malaria was completely eradicated in the United States over 60 years ago. Mosquito Squad is committed to help fight Malaria deaths worldwide. At Mosquito Squad of Columbia, we’re fighting the bite in Africa in addition to on the home front here in the Columbia SC area. Over the past 3 years, Mosquito Squad’s efforts have saved nearly 100,000 lives and we are committed to continuing and growing our effort. We are committed to a three-year initiative to save 250,000 lives over the next 3 years. Here’s how we’re going to do it.

Mosquito Squad is a proud supporter of the Malaria No More organization – an organization committed to fighting Malaria through a couple key solutions.

These include:

  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Mosquito Nets

For just one dollar, Malaria No More can provide a test and treatment regimen that will successfully diagnose and treat one person for Malaria. The treatment regimen includes the diagnostic test and a set of 6 pills to cure that person of Malaria. In addition to diagnosis and treatment, Malaria No More distributes permethrin-treated bed nets as evening is mosquito feeding time.
