Night of Nets

"No child should die from a mosquito bite," is the simple yet powerful statement used by World Vision to promote its latest country-wide campaign against malaria. Night of Nets calls young people to organize events on school campuses and parks to raise awareness around their community about the easily prevented disease that is responsible for countless lives that cannot afford an insecticide-treated bed net. Along with raising funds to provide nets for families in a Zambian community, they will be petitioning government leaders to commit to using more resources to combat malaria. Communities are encouraged to schedule their "night" close to World Malaria Day, April 25.
