Buy a Net to Save a Child
You've seen the ads on television encouraging viewers to donate $10 to buy a net to save a child in Africa...via the UN.
If it makes you nervous to donate through the UN given their record of mismanagement of funds, Operation Blessing is a good alternative to donate through.
Every 30 seconds a child under 5 years old dies from malaria, which claims over a million lives a year.
Malaria is preventable! A $10 bed net is a simple solution that can save lives. Since mosquitoes are most active during twilight and nighttime hours, the insecticide-treated nets act as a safe and natural barrier to help protect families as they sleep and keep mosquitoes away from those most vulnerable – children.
