Malaria No More Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Author: Mosquito Squad of Greater Washington DC

Malaria No More recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. This nonprofit has been fighting to make malaria no more and we couldn’t be more impressed with their organization and their efforts to save lives.

On December 14, 2006 the White House Summit on Malaria concluded. This summit was instrumental in discussing the global threat of malaria and included world leaders such as African Presidents and US President George W. Bush, development partners, private-sector leaders, faith leaders, World Health Organization, and heads of agencies and NGOs. The end of this summit also marked the birth of Malaria No More.

It is amazing to look back at the impact that Malaria No More has had these past ten years. Statistics from 2006 show that malaria claimed the life of one child every 30 seconds in Africa. Now the World Health Organization’s latest World Malaria Report (released last month), shares that the global malaria mortality rates have declined more than 62% from 2010-2015. That means more than 6 million lives have been saved since 2000!

An extraordinary number of lives have been saved and many people are thanking Malaria No More for their role. Please see the 10th anniversary tribute video at the link below.

In 2010 (during Malaria No More’s 5th year), Mosquito Squad partnered with Malaria No More, with the goal of ending malaria deaths in Africa. While we fight the bite everyday for our clients here in America, we understand that for those in Africa, the fight against the bite is literally a matter of life and death.

Mosquito Squad launched a challenge with the goal of saving 250,000 lives over 3 years with the help of our clients and supporters.

Please join us in the fight against malaria by donating alongside Mosquito Squad at SwatMalaria.net. Any dollar amount can help by funding important educational activities and, ultimately, saving lives by preventing the citizens of Cameroon from contracting malaria.
