One of the oldest diseases in the world is carried by one of the world's peskiest animals — the mosquito. And even though malaria has been eliminated in the U.S., half the world is still at risk. In fact, every two minutes a child dies from this deadly, yet preventable, disease.
Every November, the global health community commemorates Malaria Day in the Americas to celebrate the progress made toward ending malaria in the region. But even with significant moves towards elimination, the disease continues to affect millions of people in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The good news? There are ways you can help. As we start the season of giving, now is the perfect time to donate a life-saving bed net to protect families from the malaria-carrying mosquitoes that bite at night. And the better news? When you donate to Nothing But Nets, your donation will be doubled to protect twice the families.
