Prevent Malaria Campaign
In 2008 there were 3.5 million cases of malaria reported and there were 20,896 reported deaths in Angola. It was also discovered that 1/3 of all cases occur in children. Children under 5 account for half of all malaria deaths.* Malaria can be prevented through the use of treated mosquito nets. The Prevent Malaria Campaign was successfully completed. We achieved our goal of raising $2500 so that we could bless 250 families by the year 2013. We delivered 250 mosquito nets to a town (Sanza Pombo) and village (Alfandga) in the Uige province of Angola thus helping approximately 400 individuals on World Malaria Day. *This information was taken from http://www.netsforlifeafrica.org/where-we-work/angola.
