Studies revealed that the most effective weapon to fight malaria is prevention. Bed nets can reduce infections in an area by up to 90%. Malaria is a leading cause of death among children in Africa. Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection, which is especially dangerous for children under 5 and pregnant women. Back when the campaign was first launched, another child dies from malaria every 30 secounds. Using mosquitos nets is a proven solution to prevent this deadly disease. Nothing- but-Nets has successfully made an effort in improving the figure through out the years. We believe that prompt actions of the public to donate mosquito nets can save African children and families from malaria. 16
