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.

    Solution

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

    Activities

    » David is running an online donation and aiming to get £3300
