Night of Nets
MALARIA: We Can Be the Generation to Finally End Malaria! Join us today to help end malaria deaths by 2015!
THE GOAL FOR THIS YEAR
We are seeking to raise $30,000. This will allow us to purchase 5,000 bed nets that will directly and immediately help save and improve the lives and futures of over 10,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa.
THE DISTRIBUTION IN AFRICAN COMMUNITIES
The bed nets purchased as a result of past Night of Nets events were distributed in the spring of 2012. Students and staff were able to see first-hand the great need and remarkable opportunity for impact on a recent CU Global Opportunities trip to Zambia where malaria is a major health care issue.
the declaration to end malaria
We believe no child should die from a mosquito bite. Malaria is easily preventable and can be eliminated using inexpensive, proven measures. When the threat of malaria is eliminated, millions of needless deaths will be prevented. Economic productivity will be able to flourish in some of the poorest places on earth. And countless children will have a future filled with hope. We commit to ending malaria in our lifetime-and we call upon the U.S. Government, the international community, churches, businesses, and individuals to join us.
