Raise Funds for Nothing But Nets
Malaria is the major cause of sickness and death in children. It drastically impacts the local society and the economy. Yet, only 5 percent of pregnant women and children under five sleep beneath insecticide-treated bed nets in Congo. For just $10 you can purchase a bed net and help prevent the spread of this disease in Africa through Nothing But Nets.
