Dear Project supporters,

Malaria is a major health concern in Sierra Leone, particularly during the rainy season. It is the most common cause of death among children under 5 years old. 

In an effort to reduce malaria, fifty mosquito nets treated with insecticide were distributed to families across the Morthain community. The mosquito nets distributed create an effective barrier and provide protection from mosquito bites while families sleep.    Each of the families that received a bed net was very grateful for the added protection against malaria while they sleep.  

Your continued support is greatly appreciated and is helping provide long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) also called bed nets or mosquito nets to more families and individuals in Sierra Leone.  

We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Amy & The Develop Africa Team

Dear Life Savers,

Your continued support is greatly appreciated and is helping provide long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) also called bed nets or mosquito nets to families and individuals in Sierra Leone. These mosquito nets create an effective barrier and provide protection from mosquito bites while families sleep.  Because of the mosquito nets they received, children like Marina & Festus pictured here can now focus on their education and not on malaria.

Festus just finished class 4 and he loves playing soccer and dream of one working professionally at a bank. Marina just graduated from nursery school and loves to draw and create beautiful pictures. Her dream is to become a creative artist. 

Marina & Festus are both future leaders of Sierra Leone and their Long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) will provide them with an ongoing source of protection to prevent Malaria.

Your continued support is appreciated as we strive to provide more families in Sierra Leone with protective long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).  We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here

For only $10 you can save lives by providing a family with a mosquito net.  Help Draw the Line against Malaria!

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters, 

We are going to “Draw the Line Against Malaria” this World Malaria Day (April 25th) and your continued support is helping to do that by providing long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) also called bed nets to families and individuals in Sierra Leone.

As many as one in two children under the age of five admitted into children’s wards in Sierra Leone have been there as a result of severe malaria.

Statistically, according to WHO-

  • In 2019, there were an estimated 229 million cases of malaria worldwide.
  • The estimated number of malaria deaths stood at 409,000 in 2019.
  • Children aged under 5 years are the most vulnerable group affected by malaria; in 2019, they accounted for 67% (274,000) of all malaria deaths worldwide.
  • The WHO African Region carries a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden. In 2019, the region was home to 94% of malaria cases and deaths.

As part of Develop Africa Sierra Leone interventions to our beneficiaries, 100 mosquito nets treated with insecticide were recently distributed to children in Freetown, Bo, Makeni, and Kamawornie.

These long-lasting treated nets are expected to prevent these kids and their families from malaria for at least one year and could make a significant difference to the health of these kids.

According to statistics gathered by the Kamawornie Village Hospital in 2019/2020, 628 under five kids and 440 adults were affected by malaria, with a total of 1068 malaria cases were recorded.

We encourage you to help #EndMalaria by making a donation today to provide a bed net to a family in need. For every $10 you donate, another family will have a life-saving bed net.

You can even start a monthly recurring donation here to provide bed nets to new families all year long. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 Dear Project Supporters, 

Your continued support is greatly appreciated in providing long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) also called bed nets to families and individuals in Sierra Leone.  Bed nets were provided to the kids of Jonathan's foundation at the Mayaya village to help prevent the kids from getting malaria.

The CEO of Jonathan's foundation at the Mayaya village was very thankful for the nets noting that they will be very useful to the orphans of the Mayaya village to help to prevent them from getting malaria while they sleep. She expressed her thanks in this video saying-

On behalf of Jonathan's foundation, we want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Develop Africa for being thoughtful to give bed nets to these children of Jonathan's foundation.  

We say thank you and God bless you!

Long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) will provide future leaders with an ongoing source of protection to prevent Malaria. Your continued support is appreciated as we strive to provide every family in Sierra Leone with protective long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).

If you have not had a chance to set a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way in providing protective bed nets to every family in Freetown. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.
