Meet a life you've helped preserve - Princess.  Take a 2nd look at her photo...

Princess lives at Upper Beccle Street in the Wellington community. She is almost four years old. At this early age, she is very talkative and talks of becoming a lawyer when she grows up

Princess' father has abandoned the home for two years now. The mother is a seamstress / tailor and uses the money derived from her skill to help in providing for the home.  Her grandfather is a bike rider (motorcycles are used as a form of public transportation – providing fast access independent of traffic).  He is the main provider of the home with monthly income of $70 – which is not enough to cover the basic family needs. They live in a three bed room apartment with running water and electricity.

Princess has heard of the horrors of Malaria from the members of her family – who have each earlier contracted the sickness through mosquito bites.  She and her family were delighted to receive this simple but effective protection against the killer disease of malaria. 

Thanks to your generosity, Princess and many, more children, (who are particularly prone of this illness due to lower resistance) will be able to sleep safe and protected from the pesky mosquito bites and the risk of sickness from malaria.  By your donation, you have helped to preserve her life from sickness and even death and this is tremendous!  You have saved her from becoming one of the unfortunate millions who die every year - lives lost to malaria.  Thank you so much for helping to preserve Princess’ life.  Now she will grow up to be a true Princess and fulfill her destiny.

Tremendous and Effective Way to Save Lives:  Giving towards the provision of mosquito nets is an effective way to help combat the spread of malaria and save lives.  Study after study confirms this and we have together been able to furnish many families with these nets.  Your donation is making a definite difference and positive impact to the lives of families.  As you go about your day / week, remember her face and the fact that you have made an indelible difference.

By donating to this project - you are doing the greatest good saving lives from malaria and death!  It’s heart-warming to have this opportunity to help preserve a life and destiny.  Join us in extending and doing tremendous good.  Thanks for your on-going support.
