Lake HawassaONE COMPASSION PROGRAMS BITES BACK AT MALARIA

To combat malaria in Awassa, the local Compassion child development center distributed mosquito nets provided by Compassion’s Malaria Prevention fund. The center also presents annual training sessions that teach families how to protect themselves from malaria. Every three months, a cleaning project is organized to clean areas around Lake Hawassa to prevent mosquito breeding.

Before the distribution of malaria nets, there were 28 cases of malaria reported among children at the development center. Today, there’s not a single case of malaria present. That’s the power of your donation!

Malaria Intervention

When you give a malaria donation, your money goes to help the world's most vulnerable citizens ... children living in poverty. Your malaria donation through Compassion's Malaria Intervention fund will help save lives. Your money provides children and their families with insecticide-treated mosquito nets, health care and education about the disease.

Children who live in poverty already face extremely difficult odds of survival. Without your malaria donation, the odds of survival are even smaller. Your donation will provide a child in poverty with a bed net treated with insecticide to prevent mosquito bites.

Malaria is an easily preventable, treatable disease, yet when malaria goes untreated, cerebral malaria can develop in as little as two days. When this happens, a child can slip into a coma and eventually die. Your malaria donation to Compassion's Malaria Intervention fund can prevent this tragic and totally unnecessary situation.

Preventing malaria is so easy, its almost a no-brainer. Give a malaria donation today and give a child in poverty one less burden to bear.
