This time of year marks reason for much excitement for villagers in Mali. It's planting time! As they look toward the future and hope for a good harvest, they also look forward to ways that they can protect their children from the ensuing onslaught of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes carry deadly diseases like malaria and yellow fever. Now is the time for action to stop these pests in their tracks.
Buying a mosquito net for a family is a simple way that you can help villagers focus on the progress that the rainy season can provide. The sooner they receive their nets, the sooner they can rest at ease, knowing they are protected.
Our in-country health coordinator tells us that the demand is always higher than we can provide for. Please help us give the gift of good health to Malian villagers this rainy season!
