Mosquito Nets for Africa
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.
Where and How
There are several places you can go online to contribute to
this important issue. Research shows that between 2006 and
2008 over 12,000 lives were saved because of these incredible
lifesaving treated mosquito nets. There are many organizations
that will ship your precious gift to Africa or to the location
it is needed the most, and it is wiser to let the experts
handle it than to ship it individually. If you have been a
donor in the past to a charity or non-profit organization
such as World Vision,
CCFC or any other third-world
or African country organization, you can contact them again
to donate a mosquito net . Typically, they will ship your
contribution with their bulk shipments to that particular
area. Donating mosquito nets to Africa could save many lives.
The organization will supply the net, in some cases a treated
net, and you will receive a receipt for your contribution.
Buy Little or More
There is no minimum donation. You can purchase one, one dozen
or one hundred mosquito nets for Africa. Each mosquito net
will help one family. If everyone could donate $12 each from
one town or city of 100,000 people that would quickly turn
into 100,000 treated nets and possibly 100,000 saved lives.
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. Even if you do not belong to or donate
to any organization, your one time gift of $12 could save
a life or lives. Remove suffering from children that are only
learning about life and should not have to endure the suffering
caused by Malaria.
Shipping - Done For You

that are dedicated to helping prevent malaria. It has been

saving mosquito nets for Africa. Just type in mosquito nets
