Mosquito Net Project

After working outside with Daddy the other night, my youngest came in with mosquito bites ALL over her legs. We put some itching cream on them and she went off to bed.

Now... that isn't really a big deal in itself.  The "big deal" part is that I didn't have to worry that she might get sick with malaria from those bites.

In Uganda those mosquito bites would be deadly.  320 people die each day from malaria in Uganda.  It is the leading cause of death in children under 5 years old.

Mosquito bites kill. 

Malaria is treatable and preventable.  The problem is poverty.  People don't have the money for the medication or for the mosquito nets.

Part of our plan through The Suubi Project is to show the love of Jesus to the villagers around our project in a practical way.

To SHOW His love we want to purchase 336 mosquito nets.  That will provide each family in the village with two nets.  It's a practical way of caring for the poor.

One net costs $10.00.  Ten dollars.  Ten!

The fact is mosquito nets prevent mosquito bites which prevent malaria which saves lives.

Ten Dollars = One Net = One Life.  That's a great investment!

Please visit The Suubi Project  and help us show His LOVE!

"whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:45
