BENEFITING: Reach The Children
Nelson Edmond Obella
Many innocent children and pregnant women in Africa are constantly exposed to the devastating effects of Malaria carrying mosquitoes. The danger is especially great at night when they are sleeping. By simply using a mosquito net when sleeping these children and women can greatly reduce their risk of being bitten and infected. However, most of them cannot afford a simple mosquito net because all of their funds go to purchase food an clean water. For the small price of a mosquito of 7 US dollars, a child or a pregnant woman can be saved from this horrible, life-threatening disease. VERDE-Uganda (Voluntary Efforts for Rural Development) working through American Fund for Charities is trying to change this situation by purchasing and distributing these(4000) life-saving mosquito nets to save lives. Please help us to save many of these rural infants and pregnant women through this campaign.
