Project information

Mosquito nets

Hundreds of children die from malaria each day in Uganda.

Please give just £5.00 and this will buy one net. Do not be too embarrassed to give this small amount (or an even smaller one – if it is all you can afford). Every penny counts.

    Hundreds of children are dying unnecessarily from malaria each day in Uganda.


    By buying nets for these children many lives will be saved.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To purchase as many nets as possible for the children

    » Lynda is being sponsored in the Bristol 10K run

    What success will look like

    Success will be...when the nets are given to the children and they are using them.

  • Impact


    Malaria will start to decrease and the children will not be reinfected. Sponsore children and borders at schools can easily be monitored.


    Children are afriad to be under a net. A health worker gives talks to the children.
