We are thrilled to announce that thanks to YOUR support this project for mosquito nets has been fully funded! This means, effective immediately, we are deactivating this project until our need level changes. We cannot express our gratitude for your support in making this happen. We could not do the work we do, without YOU!
As you know, Malaria, transmitted by mosquitos, is one of the top health issues our friends in Mali face. And, mosquito nets are the best method of protection.
For those who live in extreme poverty, purchasing a mosquito net is not at the top of their list.
Thanks to supporters like you, the Alliance subsidizes the costs of the net so that our villages can protect themselves and their families.
Thank you again for you continued support of this initiative and we hope you will continue to support the Ouelessebougou Alliance in our other initiatives!
Malaria, a deadly disease transmitted by mosquitos, remains one of the top health concerns for the people of Ouelessebougou, and for people in much of Africa.
One of the best, and most cost effective, methods of protection is a mosquito net.
Insecticide treated mosquito nets only cost $10 and can cover an entire family while they sleep, protecting them while mosquitos are most active. But, when you live on less than $1 a day, $10 can seem impossible.
The Alliance subsidizes the cost of the net so that villagers only have to pay $1. Not only does this give a family ownership of the net, but encourages both maintenance and participation in training - on how to use the nets and on malaria prevention.
We cannot claim 100% success with the nets. No organization can. But, with your help, we can continue to provide the best tools to protect the people of Ouelessebougou. With your help, we can help make it possible for a family to have a mosquito net.
It’s the rainy season in Mali, which means mosquitos are out in full force through October. Malaria, a deadly disease transmitted by mosquitos, remains one of the top health concerns the villagers of Ouelessebougou face.
Insecticide treated mosquito nets are one of the most effective methods of protection against malaria and cost only $10. You can help those who live in extreme poverty get one of these nets to protect their families.
The Alliance subsidizes the cost of the net so that villagers only have to pay $1. Not only does this give a family ownership of the net, but encourages both maintenance of the net and participation in training - on how to use the nets and on malaria prevention. The Alliance organizes these trainings during distribution.
We cannot claim 100% success with the nets. No organization can. But, with your help, we can continue to provide the best tools to protect the people of Ouelessebougou. With your help, we can see 1,300 nets distributed this year!
Thank you for your continued support of this critical initiative!
It’s almost June which means that in Mali, the rainy season is upon us, and mosquitos are out in full force until October.
But because of you, and your donations, we were able to purchase mosquito nets during the off season – meaning the Alliance and the villagers did not have to worry about receiving enough nets.
Mosquito nets prevent against diseases like malaria and are one of the most effective live saving measures people can take. In the last 10 years the number of new malaria cases has declined by 25 percent globally. These gains have been made through a combination of interventions – especially the used of mosquito nets around the bed.
We are so thankful for your support and generosity, especially this time of year!
