Mosquito Nets for Africa

Mosquito Nets for AfricaFor a cost of $12.00 you can potentially save a life. That is all it would take to purchase an mosquito net for Africa that includes an insecticide. This mosquito net will protect an adult or child from the dreaded female attacker who deposits the disease, usually at night, into the bloodstream. $12 is one dollar a month for a year. Many die in a year without this protection. We realize life can be difficult enough when you are asked to contribute, but look at it this way; at least you have a life and are possibly enjoying the benefits of it. Mosquitoes in Africa are rampant, that is why the demand for mosquito nets for Africa is so urgent, and people are far from enjoying life as they slowly die from the dreaded malaria implanted in them by those horrendous mosquitoes. Your $12 could save not just one life, but the lives of a family with one treated net. Learn more about the different types of mosquitoes.

Innovation is constantly coming up with more ways to help the serious problems that mosquitoes bring. One donation is all it would take to save one life, look at it as an equal trade off, and one McDonald’s meal for one life of a child. Next time you bite into that hamburger think about the mosquito, also having a different kind of lunch, that is biting into that tiny child and leaving a deadly contribution. ONE LUNCH = ONE LIFE. It is so easy to brush the thought aside, next time you get a mosquito bite make sure it isn’t passing on some deadly disease to you. A child that doesn’t have the privilege of using calamine lotion to rid the slight aggravation but who will suffer greatly, even die. Your donation to send one insecticide treated mosquito net to Africa could save that little life.

Lives that would not have to suffer the pain and endure the stages of terror and agony that one single malaria infested mosquito can deliver.
