It threatens half the world’s population and kills nearly half a million people each year. Most of them are small children and pregnant women.
As mosquito control experts, we know that in addition to being an annoyance, mosquitoes carry deadly diseases, the most prevalent being malaria. Malaria was eradicated in the US over 50 years ago. However, over 250 million Africans contract malaria each year, resulting in the death of over 1,000 children every single day, mostly under the age of five.
Five years ago, Mosquito Squad forged a relationship with Malaria No More, a nonprofit global health organization with the goal of ending malaria deaths in Africa. While we fight the bite everyday as a convenience for our clients here at home, we understand that for many, the fight against the bite is far, far more important — it is literally a matter of life and death.
Since 2012, Mosquito Squad’s efforts have raised well over $200,000 to help fuel the fight against malaria. When we donate a portion of our sales to Malaria No More, we’re saving lives by supporting activities in Cameroon to ensure adequate, timely and widespread communications that help inform school-aged children and communities regarding protective bed net distributions and proper usage.
Please join us in the fight against malaria by donating alongside Mosquito Squad at SwatMalaria.net. Any dollar amount can help by funding important educational activities and, ultimately, saving lives by preventing the citizens of Cameroon from contracting malaria.
