This program aims to provide 5000 mosquito nets for HopeCore's Child-Maternal Health Program in Kenya. The project is initiated by two elementary students in Oregon who will be raising awareness in their schools about Malaria and planning on being in Kenya this August to help deliver the nets directly to the Kenyan children.

Challenge

Malaria is a mosquito-borne illness affecting half of the world's population. In 2015, 91% of all malaria deaths occurred in Africa. Insecticide-treated nets reduce child mortality by an average of 18%. This is a preventable disease and mosquito nets are and the solution is available through simple, low-cost, scalable strategies.

Solution

The "Kids Helping Kids" campaign is championed by elementary students, Tayden (9 yrs) and Crixus (6 ) who will be raising Malaria awareness in their schools in Southern Oregon and are aiming to raise $10,000 to provide 5,000 insecticide-treated bed nets for children who are part of HopeCore's Child-Maternal Health program. All of the proceeds from this project will go directed to mosquito nets for the children.

Long-Term Impact

According to the World Health Organization, 5.5 lives can be saved every year for every 1,000 children under 5 years of age protected. Since HopeCore's Malaria eradication campaign began, the program alone has saved more than 120 lives. Help us to continue to spread awareness about Malaria and help provide children and families with protection from this preventable disease!
