Malaria Intervention

Help prevent malaria by making a non-profit donation for a malaria net to Compassion International. Malaria is a preventable, treatable disease, yet a child dies of malaria every 30 seconds. This can happen when malaria is not treated, and cerebral malaria develops in as quickly as two days. Once this happens, a child can slip into a coma and eventually die.

Malaria is a preventable, treatable disease, yet a child dies of malaria every 30 seconds. This can happen when malaria is not treated, and cerebral malaria develops in as quickly as two days. Once this happens, a child can slip into a coma and eventually die.

Families in poverty need help dealing with this potentially fatal disease. Many cannot afford insecticide-treated mosquito nets or medical treatment.

This fund is a part of Health and Medical Needs.

How Compassion Helps

MalariaImage1 375x155

Mumu, a Compassion-assisted child in Kenya, is no stranger to malaria. Several times a year she struggled through the fever, headaches and pain of malaria. Then Mumu, along with more than 400 children in her community, received a treated mosquito bed net from Compassion.

"Now I sleep comfortably," she says. "I do my homework without even thinking about the mosquitoes. I am glad that I have a net to sleep under every night!"

Compassion intervenes by:
  • Providing households at risk with treated mosquito nets
  • Educating family members on malaria prevention
  • Treating those suffering from malaria, chagas disease and dengue fever
