Thanks to Treated Bednets Provided, Beneficiaries are Free from Malaria

Dear friends and supporters

It's a pleasure once again to share a project update - this time in the form of a video.  It certainly helps to see and also hear about the impact we are making together.  Sometimes, we may be disengaged or not fully grasp the impact of our intervention - providing nets.  The video helped me realize again how essential nets are to life and health in Sierra Leone. 

In the video, Joshua conveys gratitude on behalf of the community (in Wellington, Freetown, Sierra Leone) and Door of Hope for the provision of insecticide-treated bed nets.   He explains that as a result of the provision of hundreds of nets, the children, women and men are no longer under threat from malaria. Thanks to your generosity and that of Develop Africa donors, many lives are now malaria-free.

Watch the video

The linked WHO report confirms that "Mosquito nets have been key to bringing down the death toll from the disease".  Global targets for combating the disease are under threat as the rate of increase in funding is leveling off.  Given this decline in global support, it's all the more important that we increase our efforts to combat this disease. Let's continue to ensure that many more families are able to live in good health - free from malaria.  The nets we provide together will help them live longer by making sure that they are malaria-free.  With these nets the beneficiaries can focus their energies and resources on other important issues. 

We welcome your on-going support that enables the provision of many more nets. Through your special large gift today or by signing up for a recurring donation, we will together do so much more.  Thanks for helping to maintain funding for the provision of nets - setting people free from the threat of Malaria!
