Today, we’re so excited to announce that — thanks to thousands of Nothing But Nets supporters across the country and the world — we’ve gotten a life-saving bed net to every family in the Central African Republic. In less than six months, you’ve helped us raise nearly 1 million nets!
Together with our partners, PSI, UNICEF, and the Ministry of Health, Nothing But Nets has helped ensure that families in C.A.R. will be able to protect themselves from malaria for years to come. Filling this urgent need for nets in C.A.R. was an important step toward achieving the global goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015.
Of the amazing response of Nothing But Nets supporters for Central African Republic, Champion Mandy Moore said, “The fact that thousands of people around the country came together so quickly to help protect families on the other side of the world is overwhelming, and so inspiring.” Read the full statement here.
Thank you all for your hard work sending nets and saving lives in Central African Republic. Together, we truly are covering a continent with life-saving nets! Enjoy these photos from the distribution in Central African Republic:
