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, families like Agness's family pictured here can now sleep without worrying about mosquito bites at night.

Agness and her kids expressed their appreciation for the bed net that they received.  She said

Hello, my name is Agness and I live in the Morthain community. I want to say thank you for giving us a mosquito net to sleep under. Thank you for protecting us from malaria.

Your continued support is appreciated as we strive to provide more families in Sierra Leone with protective long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).  Our recurring donors are making a continuous impact and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support.  If you are not yet a recurring donor, we warmly invite you to consider starting a monthly recurring donation here

For only $10 you can save lives by providing a family with a mosquito net.  

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.

April 25 is World Malaria Day and this year’s theme is "Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives.”

"Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease that continues to have a devastating impact on the health and livelihood of people around the world. In 2020, there were an estimated 241 million new cases of malaria and 627,000 malaria-related deaths in 85 countries. More than two-thirds of deaths were among children under the age of 5 living in the WHO African Region."-https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-malaria-day/2022

Recently 25 mosquito nets were distributed to families in the Kanigo community.  These mosquito nets will save lives in a Malaria prone community like the Kanigo community where prevention is critical, and treatment is difficult to access. Bed nets create an effective barrier and provide protection from mosquito bites for two years hence preventing Malaria and reducing the burden of Malaria in Sierra Leone. Each of the families was very grateful to receive the insecticide-treated nets. 

Your continued support is greatly appreciated and is helping provide long-lasting insecticide-treated 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.

Dear Project supporters,

In Sierra Leone, research has proven that one in every two children under the age of five admitted into pediatric care is affected by malaria. Mosquito nets create an effective barrier and provide protection from mosquito bites for two years hence preventing Malaria and reducing the burden of Malaria in Sierra Leone.

Thanks in part to your ongoing support, Develop Africa distributed 190 mosquito bed nets treated with insecticide to families in Sierra Leone in 2021.  Among the 190 mosquito nets distributed, 100 mosquito nets were distributed to children and families in Freetown, Bo, and Makeni, and 90 mosquito nets were distributed to pupils at the Stella Maris Primary School and Morthain community. 

Your continued support is appreciated as we strive to provide 300 children/families in Sierra Leone with protective long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) in 2022. Every donation received helps purchase more mosquito nets and saves more lives. If you are not already a recurring donor you can 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.

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.

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!
