Nothing But Nets
EVERY 60 SECONDS A CHILD DIES FROM MALARIA, A DISEASE SPREAD BY A SINGLE MOSQUITO BITE.
Children under five are at greatest risk and they account for more than 75 percent of malaria deaths. However, an insecticide-treated bed net creates a physical barrier against deadly malaria-carrying mosquitoes. With just US $10, you can send a life-saving bed net to sub-Saharan Africa through the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to children and their families who need it most.
In partnership with Nothing But Nets, JCI members work to raise global awareness, fundraise, and advocate for the fight against malaria. Since 2008, JCI members worldwide unite community partners, friends and their families to purchase and distribute bed nets while also educating families in Africa on their proper use. With the help of JCI, Nothing But Nets has sent more than 7 million life-saving bed nets to families in sub-Saharan Africa. We are on our way to achieving a malaria-free world. Coordinated global efforts to fight malaria have reduced child deaths by more than half. Together we can end this deadly disease in our generation! Join the fight against malaria today and send a net to save a life.
