KIDS AID TANZANIA

Fighting Malaria

Kids Aid Tanzania has protected some 10,000 children from malaria by distributing World Health Organisation-approved bed nets.   Every 45 seconds a child under the age of 5 dies from malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.   Millions of children get sick from the disease.   It is caused by the bite of the female anopholes mosquito which is active from dusk to dawn.   Sleeping under a long-life insecticide-impregnated bed net provides protection.   Nets are only given out after people have been educated on how malaria is caused.
