Every year, there are over 200 million cases of malaria and nearly 1 million deaths. Malaria accounts for one fifth of all childhood deaths in Africa, where it kills a child every 60 seconds.
We know that chemically treated mosquito nets are one of the most effective ways to tackle malaria and yet so many children in Africa still don't have one. Your £3 could help buy a net and save a young life.

Fuseini, an everyday hero
To the people of Zankalli village, Ghana, 27-year old farmer, Fuseini is a hero. Every afternoon he exchanges his hoe for a health kit and begins working as a community health volunteer – helping to protect his village from deadly malaria.
He distributes chemically treated mosquito nets to people in the village and educates people about the causes and symptoms of malaria. All the while saving lives.
There are volunteers like Fuseini across Africa who are working to protect their communities from malaria. But 150 million people across Africa still don’t have access to a net.
Please stand up to malaria. Give £3. Send a net. Save a life.
