JCI Curepipe Nothing But Nets Campaign – Jacques David Commarmond

15 Jul


Every 60 seconds a child dies of malaria. In 2008, it was every 30 seconds and JCI members have been part of the fight to save lives and change this statistic. Improvement has been achieved, but even one child dying of malaria is too many. We must continue our commitment to sending insecticide-treated bed nets to sub-Saharan Africa to protect all at risk of a malaria-transmitting mosquito bite.

Partnered with the UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign since 2008, this year brings exciting new programs and opportunities for active citizens to continue their fight against malaria.

With over 660,000 deaths every year, Malaria is a pandemic currently devastating population on the African continent in countries ranging from South Sudan to Chad, and Madagascar to Sierra Leone.

Thanks to Nothing But Nets, an initiative of the United Nations Foundation, millions of lives in Africa have been saved through their program to provide long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets to children and families. As a proud and active Nothing But Nets partner, JCI runs a campaign called JCI Nothing But Nets. Through the campaign, JCI members raise funds to send mosquito nets to Africa and educate children and their families on the correct use and care of the nets. While your nation may not be affected by widespread malaria, 40% of people in the world live in countries that are. And they need your help.

For every $10 you donate, the Nothing But Nets initiative will donate one insecticide-treated bet net to a family at risk of contracting Malaria. This will protect them from Mosquitoes spreading the disease.

The journey of a bed net:
