Saving Lives from Malaria

Across sub-Saharan Africa malaria kills a child every sixty seconds. This insidious disease takes the lives of thousands of babies and young children each year. Malaria is particularly deadly for refugees, who may not be used to living in regions with malaria and are particularly vulnerable - often without beds to hang nets over.

No child should ever die from malaria - a preventable disease. No refugee should be worried about a mosquito during the most challenging time in their life.

All it takes to prevent malaria and help ensure the health of a child is a simple insecticide-treated bed net.
