This is the 7th day of our Advent Calendar and we will be donating to Malaria No More
Because no child should die from a mosquito bite. It’s the 21st century and yet a child dies every minute from a preventable and treatable disease.
Malaria cripples economies, crushes communities and causes heartbreaking loss. No parent should lose a child from a totally preventable and treatable disease. The majority of deaths from malaria are in children under five.
Malaria keeps children out of school and adults out of work, contributing to the cycle of poverty. It puts unnecessary pressure on fragile health systems and in some countries can account for up to 40% of hospital admissions. The disease arrests economic growth, stealing the prosperity of communities, countries and continents.
