Every 60 seconds, malaria kills another child


Every 60 seconds malaria kills another child.

Meet Kosi. She’s three years old. Like a lot of children in Africa she’s already lost siblings to malaria: one brother and a sister have already died from this killer disease.

A regular gift could help us save lives.

Mosquitos often bite while children are asleep. Millions of children suffer agonising bouts of malaria every year, and thousands of young lives are tragically lost.

Mosquito nets are only the first step in the fight against malaria.

Our partners work tirelessly to train community volunteers, who pass on life-saving health advice and help people get access to the free healthcare they’re entitled to.

But we rely on your generous support to continue our fight against malaria.

Without ongoing funding, malaria will continue to thrive - robbing thousands of a future.

Please sign up to give a monthly gift today and help us make a difference. Let’s not wait for malaria to claim another child’s life.
