PwC Malaria Relief - June 2010
I will be going to Malawi in January, joining some other PwC colleagues, from the UK and Malawi, to assist in the distribution of bednets with the charity Concern Universal. The aim is to provide as many homes in the Ntcheu district of Malawi with insecticide-treated bednets to protect against mosquitoes and aid in the fight against malaria.
Seventy per cent of the deaths are of children under 5, which is the equivalent to one child dying of malaria in Africa every 30 seconds, or to put it more bluntly 900 children will die in the time we are at work today. One bednet which lasts 4 years, and protects 2 children, costs just £3.
Many thanks for your support and generosity.
