Description

Malaria No More (MNM) works to make sure every family in Africa has timely access to the tools they need to prevent, diagnose, and treat malaria. They have provided 5.6 million people with mosquito nets in 11 different African countries. They also distribute rapid diagnostic tests and artemisnin-based combination treatments to reduce malaria deaths. Education is another part of their solution. They are promoting an initiative, Nightwatch, to provide health education to families. So far, their Nightwatch campaign has reached over 20 million Africans. However, MNM isn’t only working on the ground in Africa. TheMalaria Policy Center, a MNM project, is working with governments all over the world to keep the issue of malaria on the world’s agenda. They also usetechnology, media, and pop culture to encourage the public to fight this issue.

Mission Statement: Malaria No More is determined to end malaria deaths. They’re helping the world get it done by engaging leaders, rallying the public, and delivering life-saving tools and education to families across Africa.

Our Connection

Family Discretionary Grant. A young boy in our family could not imagine how or why children in African countries should become gravely ill or even lose their lives over something as tiny as a mosquito–in today’s world–when all they need is a simple net to protect the family while sleeping. The Skees Family Foundation chose to support Malaria No More in 2007 in order to help fight the continuous problem. We hope for a future where deaths from this preventable and treatable disease no longer exist.
