Malaria Intervention - Compassion International

Malaria Intervention

More than half the world's population live in areas at risk of malaria transmission. And according to the World Health Organization (WHO) there were approximately 214 million cases of malaria in 2014.

Even though malaria is a preventable, treatable disease, WHO estimates that there were 438,000 deaths from malaria in 2014 and that more than two thirds (70 percent) of all malaria deaths are to children under 5.

A donation of $18 provides an insecticide-treated bed net, plus training for a child and his or her family to avoid the mosquito bites that cause this disease and can ultimately lead to death if untreated.

This fund is a part of Health and Medical Needs.

How Compassion Helps

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
$18 provides 1 Malaria Prevention Night as well as training and education to prevent malaria for a child and his or her family.
