Today's gift is a donation to Nothing But Nets, an organization that provides nets to help prevent malaria. For as little as $10, a person in Africa can receive a bed net and education to protect against malaria.
Here are some facts from the Nothing But Nets website:
- Malaria is the leading cause of death among children in Africa.
- Every 45 seconds, a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection.
- More then 200 million people each year are infected, and nearly 1 million of those die.
- Nothing But Nets uses 100 percent of every $10 contribution to cover the cost of purchasing a long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed net, distributing it, and educating communities on its use.
