A few months ago we were presented with an idea I personally love working on – an idea that raises money to end malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. End. Not just curb. End.
Swat Malaria is a partnership between Mosquito Squad and Malaria No More to raise $75,000 and show that just $10 provides a mosquito net for one person for five years, which is essential to ending malaria deaths in Africa.
Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease. Yet, it takes the life of an African child every 45 seconds and more than one million people die from it every year.
How can you help?
