The thing is, insecticide treated bed nets have proven to be a cost effective way of impacting malaria, reducing child mortality in affected countries by 20% and illness by 50%. The nets protect children and their families from malaria mosquitoes – and each net only costs NZ$11.
UNICEF Undercover is aiming to raise $385,000 by the end of 2010. That will put 35,000 nets into the homes of those who would otherwise be at risk. Even one donation of $11 will make a difference. You can donate here.
