Has purchased 7,150 bednets to protect those living in malaria-stricken areas from infected mosquitos. This has helped save 4 lives, according to GiveWell.
Against Malaria Foundation
Malaria kills about 400,000 people every year and more than 200 million fall ill. Before bed nets were made available, it was three or more times that. Nets are a proven intervention - a more effective a way of saving lives than any other. There is still a long way to go and every death from malaria is preventable.
•70% of the deaths are children under 5 •Malaria is the world's single largest killer of pregnant women •90% of the deaths are in sub-Saharan Africa
Yet malaria is totally preventable and treatable. Nobody need die. Prevention is better than treatment.
•The most effective means of prevention is sleeping under a mosquito net •Specifically a Long-Lasting Insecticide treated Net (LLIN) •Each net costs $2.00 lasts for 3 to 4 years, and protects on average two people. •Every ~600 nets we put over heads and beds, one child doesn't die and 500 to 1,000 cases of malaria are prevented.
Funded 18 complete surgeries to safely repair a woman's obstetric fistula, and rehabilitation services.
Fistula Foundation: is the global leader in fistula treatment. Since 2009, we have delivered life-transforming surgeries at more than 150 sites in 32 countries across Africa and Asia to more than 50,000 women.
No Woman Left Behind
We’re on a mission to find every woman suffering and bring her treatment. Too often patients hide their condition out of shame, making them difficult to find. And often they are unaware that treatment is even available. By supporting outreach, we’re helping to reach the vast backlog of cases and to identify and transport more women for life-changing surgery.
Local health workers to educate communities:
Using their deep cultural knowledge, local health workers design the strategies that they know will be most effective in raising awareness about fistula, and ultimately finding women who need help.
Transportation to connect women with care:
Many women who develop obstetric fistula live in remote, rural areas and often cannot afford the cost of transportation to a distant hospital.
