For every purchase you make, we fund a bed net.
By the time you are done reading this paragraph, a child in Africa will have died from Malaria. According to UNICEF, Malaria is the third largest killer of children in the world. It is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite that feeds on humans. People who contract malaria are typically sick with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like illness (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.) With the right measures, this severe disease can be cured and prevented, yet 2,000 children still lose their lives to malaria every day.
To tackle this pressing issue, The Ubuntu Project will fund the most effective method in preventing Malaria - bed nets - through The Against Malaria Foundation. Each bed net will be distributed to people in Africa most susceptible to the disease.
If you fund a bed net, not only can your purchase save a life, but it will improve the overall economy of Africa as well. Decreased levels of illness and death result in a reduced burden on health systems and increased productivity in the workforce to generate a wealthier nation. So, we mean it when we say: every purchase you make, makes a difference.
