Bare Necessity Kits provide life saving mosquito nets, underwear, clothing, sandals, blankets and flashlights.

 

Mosquito nets are one of the most important parts of our Bare Necessity Kits because Malaria is one of the major causes of morbidity & mortality, especially in children under five years old, in Malawi.

 

Donations to our Bare Necessity Kits helps protect children from this danger.

 

With 6 million suspected cases treated annually, Malaria is responsible for about 40% of all hospitalization of children under five years old.

 

Using insecticide treated nets have been shown to avert around 50% of Malaria cases.

 

Insecticide treated mosquito nets cost an average of $10 and last as long as 7 years.
