The Story

Residents of malaria-endemic countries need your help and they need it now. On average, every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria. There is no time to waste in the battle to stop this devastating disease. The vast majority of deaths occur in Africa, where malaria is a leading killer of children.

 

Thanks to Nothing But Nets, an initiative of the United Nations Foundation, millions of lives in Africa have been saved through their program to provide long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets to children and families. As a proud and active Nothing But Nets partner, JCI runs a campaign called JCI Nothing But Nets. Through the campaign, JCI members raise funds to send mosquito nets to Africa and educate children and their families on the correct use and care of the nets. While your nation may not be affected by widespread malaria, 40% of people in the world live in countries that are. And they need your help.

 

So start your fundraising team today to send a net and save a life. Just USD $10 sends a net to Africa to protect a family of up to four from the deadly disease.
