Nothing But Nets in Zambia

In 2007, as a part of our effort to cover more than 1 million refugees in 15 countries in Africa, Nothing But Nets supporters sent 35,000 bed nets to support UNHCR's work to protect refugees in Zambia.

The sound that keeps mothers up at night
The sound that keeps mothers up at night is the buzz of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Too many mothers across Zambia don't sleep as soundly as they should.  

They hear the buzz of malaria-carrying mosquitoes and worry that a bite will transmit this deadly disease to their child.

Malaria is a leading cause of death of children under 5 in Zambia.  Many more become gravely ill with this disease.

It keeps parents away from the fields or office for weeks sometimes and children miss many days of school each year.

But this is a disease that is preventable.  All is takes is a simple insecticide-treated bed net to give a mother a peaceful night of sleep because she knows that her children are safe from malaria.
