Mosquito nets protect against malaria. There are about 1.5 million cases of malaria in Uganda, with over 7,000 resulting in death each year. Something as simple as a mosquito net can help keep students healthy and in the classroom. Help us provide each student with a mosquito net.
Donations also make thoughtful gifts for friends or family members. Indicate that your donation is intended as a gift, and we will supply a souvenir magnet and a gift card that can be sent to them (by you, or directly from us).
Bed nets offer a primary wall of defense against the mosquito. Mosquitoes bite primarily at night while people sleep. Not only do the nets prevent the bite from an infected mosquito, they can kill a mosquito through contact with the net’s treated surface.
