Mosquito Nets for Those in Need

At least 3% of the population in Tanzania aged over 16 years old are infected with HIV & AIDS (2011). AIDS has resulted in an estimated 1.3 million orphaned children (2011). Many families live in communities affected by HIV & AIDS, with their chances of dying from malaria being increased because of their low and impaired immune system

Children under 5 years of age are one of most vulnerable groups affected by malaria. There were an estimated 438,000 malaria deaths around the world in 2015, of which approximately 69% were in children under 5 years of age (WHO, 2016)

So far with your support, we have been able to help protect over 500 families from malaria.

Sleeping under a mosquito bed net protects individuals from malaria but sadly not all communities get access to these simple yet effective pieces of personal protection. We want to give them access!
