All eyes are on the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Outbreaks like COVID-19 threaten the world’s most vulnerable communities, including refugee families and the first line of defense against malaria – healthcare workers
It’s our mission to ensure the most vulnerable communities we’ve pledged to protect and serve continue to receive the malaria prevention and treatment tools they need.

This World Malaria Day, your gift will help provide frontline healthcare workers with the tools they need to prevent, diagnose and treat malaria for thousands of refugees in DRC. Additionally, your gift will support the creation of revised guidelines for healthcare workers on the frontlines, helping them adapt their approach to malaria control during emergencies such as COVID-19.
Help us raise $100,000 by World Malaria Day on April 25 to unlock another $100,000 in matching funds. Your gift will be DOUBLED, allowing more families at risk to receive the protection, treatment, and testing they need.Donate Now
Give now and double your impact. Together, we can protect more families in the DRC from malaria.
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) malaria is the main cause of disease transmission and even death. Refugee families – especially pregnant women and children – are most at risk. Nearly 600,000 refugees from the Central African Republic (CAR) live in the DRC, having fled their homes due to violence and conflict.
Refugees are particularly vulnerable to malaria, as travel and lack of accessible health care can compromise their immunity.
More than 52% of the refugees living at the Inke camp are women, a group often most vulnerable to contracting malaria.
Pregnant women at the Inke camp receive a mosquito net during their first prenatal consultation.
In the DRC, malaria accounts for more 19% of deaths among children under five. These deaths are preventable. Children under five can receive a bed net during routine health visits at the Inke camp.
Worldwide, a child still dies from malaria every two minutes – but you can help.
Just $10 is enough to send two lifesaving bed nets a family in the DRC. And in honor of World Malaria Day, your gift will be matched today through April 25th.
Give today and safeguard the health of families at risk in the DRC.
Together, we can end malaria in our lifetime.Donate Now
