Help women and young girls in Ghana protect themselves from malaria by providing mosquito nets.
Malaria is the most common cause of illness in Ghana, where it is responsible for over a quarter of all child deaths, and causes serious brain damage in many more infants.
Poverty-stricken communities suffer the most as they cannot afford even basic malaria prevention measures, such as mosquito nets and medicines. Young girls, pregnant women and children are especially vulnerable. Once the disease has begun to take hold, it seriously limits the ability of women to sustain their livelihoods, stopping them from working and damaging their already modest incomes.
W4’s field partner, The Village Net Ghana, provides disadvantaged young girls and women with one of the most effective items in malaria prevention – mosquito nets. Simple and easy to use, the mosquito net is also the most cost-effective solution to the problem of malaria – and sleeping under one at night can mean the difference between life and death.
Your contribution will provide disadvantaged young girls and women in Ghana with adequate malaria prevention, allowing them to continue with their livelihoods and take charge of their own futures. A donation of just 5 Euros will fund the purchase of a mosquito net and contribute to the worldwide fight against malaria.
