Clarisse

Clarisse's bed net protects her from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Clarisse is a war widow raising her two daughters and six sons in Beboura, Central African Republic.

"Malaria has always been a great burden in my family because we did not have mosquito nets. We were always sick," she explains.

The rainy season brings swarms of malaria-carrying mosquitoes each night, so her two youngest sons got malaria again and again.

I wasted money and time seeking care for my children,” she says. “I would regularly take them to the hospital.”

Then simple bed nets provided by Nothing But Nets supporters changed her family’s life. Now she doesn't have to worry about malaria striking her children, and can focus on farming to secure her family's future.

"I find the nets very useful,” Clarisse says. “Since my children sleep under them, they don't suffer as before.”
