The Good News: We are Helping to Save Lives Through Nets!

Warm greetings

We have some bad news and some good news to report:

The bad news:  Just recently there we ran across an article linked below.  Here is an excerpt from the article:

"The most dangerous type of malaria-carrying mosquito, which kills up to a million people each year, is evolving into two different species, posing grave problems for controlling the transmission of the blood parasite." 

Fortunately - even in this dark cloud, there is a silver lining in the article:

"Our studies help us to understand the makeup of the mosquitoes that transmit malaria, so that we can find new ways of preventing them from infecting people."


Here's the very good news - that is worth telling all your friends: Together we are continuing to provide insecticide-treated nets that have been proven to be very effective as a shield against mosquito bites.  I can also attest from personal experience that they do make a huge difference.

The attached photo shows some of the beneficiaries with nets that your donations have helped to provide.  We are excited about this opportunity that is making a significant impact - saving them from sickness, lost time at work or school, lost finances through medication etc.

We look forward to saving even more lives with your on-going support!  Please share this update with a friend / family member and make a donation today.  Thanks for your support!
