Donation

Your donations would provide much more than you think. We will use every cent we get to supply the locals with long-lasting insecticide-treated plants. When a net is placed it protects the body while releasing chemicals to repel the infected mosquitoes. The result from this net would be less sickness, fewer deaths, and stronger communities.
