The Added Burden of Malaria

Refugee families, especially young children, are at risk for malaria. Some might come from a low-malaria region and lack natural immunity to the disease.

Already driven from their homes and living in unfamiliar places, it is a cruel truth that a tiny mosquito may now mean life or death for a family living in a refugee camp.  Tight quarters in the camps allow malaria-carrying mosquitoes to move quickly from an infected person to a child sleeping at night. 

That is why bed nets are so vital to malaria prevention for refugees and internally displaced persons (IDP's).  This simple tool can help reduce rates of malaria in areas of high use by up to 90%.  Plus, a bed net sent to a person in need for just $10 will last that mother or child for three years.
