Network Against Malaria
NETwork-Against-Malaria is a non-profit organization started in Belleville, IL by five sisters who had heard of the plight of malaria in rural Ugandan villages from a visiting priest. They learned that malaria claims the life of a child every 30 seconds. In an effort to make a difference, these young women began selling handmade jewelry to raise money to purchase malaria nets. , and with thirteen chapters now established at universities and high school campuses across the country, NETwork-Against-Malaria continues to educate and supply rural schools with nets purchased through continuous volunteer efforts. This past spring (2016), over 2000 nets were successfully delivered. It is estimated that one net can potentially save three lives.
