"I'm glad ChildFund gave me a mosquito net ..."
About two years ago, Francis in Uganda received a mosquito net from ChildFund. Since then, he hasn't had a bout of malaria! Not only has he lived to celebrate his fifth birthday, he hasn't had to stay home from school due to illness. Unfortunately, many children in Uganda and other countries where we work miss a lot of school or even die from malaria. When Francis asked his father why these children did not sleep under mosquito nets, he answered that their parents could not afford to buy nets.
In Uganda, it's quite an accomplishment for children to live to their fifth birthdays because diseases like malaria put them at great risk for death. A health worker at a ChildFund-supported health center in Uganda told us, "Most of the cases treated are children suffering from malaria. We treat at least five children with malaria every day. In fact, we encourage women to bring the little ones here as soon as they notice symptoms of malaria."
