Help Protect Cambodian Children From Malaria and Dengue Fever
Without a doubt, one of the most disliked insects on the planet has to be the dreaded mosquito. Did you know it is also the most deadly creature on earth? The World Health Organization states that mosquito bites result in the death of over one million people each year. In Cambodia, two of the diseases seen most frequently in the villages where we work are malaria and dengue fever, and both can be extremely dangerous to children. Dengue fever cases have spiked by more than 130 percent at the beginning of 2018 as Cambodia enters into what is believed will be an epidemic year. We want to do everything possible to make sure the children in our programs stay safe, so this week we’re raising funds for every child to be safely covered at night by a mosquito net.
