Give the Gift of Life from Malaria No More


Honor the special people in your life with a gift of life in their name from Malaria No More. Earlier this year, American Idol fans raised $15 million for bed nets during the Idol Gives Back special. The Gates Malaria Foundation set the goal of 0 deaths and 0 infections in an October forum this year. They have also pledged $30 million for vaccine research.

Malaria is a preventable blood disease, transmitted by mosquitoes. It kills one child in Africa every 30 seconds. It is the single leading cause of death of children under age 5 in Africa. It is preventable and treatable. Together, we have helped. Let's reach out again this holiday season, and help another million children...










Thank you to Malaria No More and UNICEF/SUDAN/NOORANI 2006 for use of the photo of a Sudanese woman lies with her infant on a bed in a nutrition centre run by the international NGO Action contre la faim, in the Abu Shouk camp for displaced people, near El Fasher, capital of North Darfur State. A mosquito net is tied above the bed. UNICEF supports the centre's supplemental and therapeutic feeding programmes for malnourished children.
