According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2017, there were just under 220 million cases of malaria worldwide; most were on the African continent. From this, an estimated 435,000 people died, with children under 5 years of age accounting for 61% (266,000) of all malaria deaths worldwide. While great work has been done in the last twenty years to reduce mortality rates, Médecins Sans Frontières highlights that ‘a child in Africa still dies every minute from Malaria.

Mosquito Nets – A Form of Prevention

Mosquito nets are one such way to prevent malaria. In 2018, the Ugandan government concluded its campaign of distributing mosquito nets to the people of Uganda. While, this and other measures have brought about a considerable reduction in malaria-related deaths, there are still many who do not have access to them. Many refugees who live within the refugee settlements in northern Uganda are one such group. At present, this part of Uganda is home to over one million refugees from South Sudan.

The cost of a Mosquito Net is €5. If you would like to donate please follow this link.
