THE STORY:

Send a Net, Save a Life. According to the WHO Malaria Report in 2016, there were 212 millions of new malaria cases worldwide, in which, there were an estimated 429 000 deaths due to malaria. Most of these deaths occurred in the African Region (92%). Children under 5 years of age are the most susceptible to malaria illness.  In 2015, 292,000 malaria deaths are estimated to have occurred in children aged under 5 in Africa.  The high death rate also destroys the future of developing countries by striking national and regional economics. 


JCI has formed the “JCI Nothing-But-Nets” project since 2008, and is committed to raise public awareness and funds to donate directly to the “JCI Nothing-But-Nets” project. 


In collaboration with UN foundation and other global partners, the malaria mortality rate in young children fell by estimated 69% between 2000-2015. The use of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, one of the proven effective efforts in disease prevention, has raised from 30% to 53% in the previous 5 years. 


In 2017, JCI Hong Kong continuese to support this meaningful project, and JCI Lantau (one of the chapters of JCI Hong Kong) will host this event. We aim to sell 2,000 cups of coffee for fund raising, and will also set donation boxes in all branches of Pacific Coffee from June. The raised fund will be used to purchase, transport and distribute mosquito nets to families in Africa as well as to educate communities on the proper use of nets for best protection.
