Hello everyone, thank you for visiting our site and donating! Just Net No Malaria is a non-profit informal organization comprised of students from OSU who have one goal in mind, to aid in the fight against malaria in Africa. Malaria is considered globally the biggest killer of man and 75% of people who die from malaria are children under 5. Our mission is simple: raise money and purchase malaria nets so that the good people of Africa can cover themselves when they sleep at night. It is incredible that something so small and cheap can do so much good. A net can protect a sleeping child. Unicef states that sleeping under an insecticide treated bed net can reduce a child’s chance of malaria infection by 50%! With the mass production and introduction of mosquito nets to African countries, there has been an incredible reduction in the malaria rates and infection. Aside from them being easily accessed and produced, they are very cost efficient. Malaria nets can be purchased for around $10 each from various health organizations and the United Nations. Our goal is to raise 3,000 dollars, but more would be even better! With this, we could purchase our target of 300 nets, which could easily cover an entire village or more! Think about it like this, $10.00 dollars is one life you will impact and even save! Just think how many lives we can save, village by village, by our efforts. Any and all donations are very much appreciated and will be put to such great use! Lets help cover Africa, one net at a time!
