Nets keep children in Ethiopia healthier, safe from malaria and help them grow up strong
What Makes a Mother Smile?
Nets keep children in Ethiopia healthier, safe from malaria and help them grow up strong

Mothers like Kidist Ketema Semu smile big when their babies have a good appetite and eat well. 

Malaria is endemic in Kidist's community of Kombulcha in Ethiopia.  In this region many young children die and many more become sick and weakened from malaria.

But since Kidist received an insecticide-treated bed net, she and her little son Babila Charles are protected from this deadly disease.  

Babila is strong, healthy, and getting bigger every day.  Nothing makes a mother smile like watching her baby grow up healthy.

Nothing But Nets in Ethiopia

In 2008 and 2009, Nothing But Nets worked with the UN's Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to cover 6 refugee camps with 38,600 life-saving bed nets -- and we also worked to send your messages of hope to thousands of refugees in Ethiopia and elsewhere.  Later in 2011, response from Nothing But Nets supporters to an emergency appeal for the Horn of Africa allowed 40,000 bed nets to be distributed to families in need.

In total, Nothing But Nets supporters have sent 78,600 bed nets to help prevent malaria in Ethiopia.
