Mosquitos are one of the deadliest creatures in some parts of the world. Carrying diseases like dengue fever, malaria, zika virus, and other surprises, these pesky insects are far more than a nuisance. Almost half a million people died of malaria alone last year.
Malaria is both preventable and treatable, with the right tools. You can help protect the orphans and widows we serve by making sure their beds are outfitted with mosquito nets. One mosquito net only costs about $7. And it cuts down on mosquito borne infections at an incredible rate!
And thanks to the Templeton Foundation’s great generosity, the Community Clinic in Kitale, Kenya is fully equipped to treat malaria in its local community. The Templeton Foundation’s grant to ship a container full of life-saving medicine to Kenya made sure the clinic has enough anti-malarial medicine as well as things like acetaminophen and ibuprofen to bring down the dangerous high fevers malaria brings. Thank you, Templeton Foundation!
