We hear the word cancer, and we get a shiver down our spine. We find out that a friend or a family member has cancer and we tremble knowing there’s a good chance they won’t live. In Africa, 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. For only $10, you can buy a bed net that covers children’s beds to keep the Malaria-spreading mosquitoes away.
At Mosquito Squad, we’ve partnered with Malaria No More to help fight this disease. You’ve probably heard of the Malaria No More organization on shows like American Idol which is also a big contributor.
Here’s how to contribute. Just test SWAT to 85944. You will receive a message asking you to confirm your $10 contribution. Or, feel free to send a check to our office or drop by our office with a check. Make the check to Malaria No More. Each net is only $10. We will forward your payment to Malaria No More. Your donation is tax deductible.
