Battling Malaria

It kills more than 1 million people each year. It claims the life of one in every twenty African children under 5. It’s a public health problem for 40% of the world’s population. This is malaria, the life-threatening yet preventable disease that can eat up more than ¼ of a poor family’s income when one member is affected. The tragedy is that, while malaria is reasonably straightforward to prevent and treat, those most at risk have little access to mosquito nets, medication and health care. Recently, a UK manufacturer offered 2,000 nets, on our Global Hand ‘matching’ website, and, in just 6 minutes, they were snapped up by two non-profit organisations: one in Cameroon and one in Nigeria. Both work with communities for whom mosquito nets will be a lifesaving tool. That is the kind of match Global Hand loves to make.
