Every 30 seconds, a child in Africa dies from malaria. Each year, malaria infects 300-500 million people, killing between 1-3 million.
SageMilk current charity is Nothing But Nets. Nothing But Nets is dedicated to saving lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa.
In the poorest parts of the world, where effective window screens are lacking, insecticide-treated bed nets are arguably the most cost effective way to prevent malaria transmission. One bed net costs just $10 to buy and deliver to individulas in need. One bed net can safely last a family for about four years, thanks to a long lasting insecticide woven into the net fabric.
