Fight the Bite

Jun 2022 - Oct 2022

Malaria is particularly devastating in Africa, where it is a leading killer of children. In fact, there are 10 new cases of malaria every second. Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies from malaria infection and 90% of all malaria deaths occur in the region. When combined with HIV/AIDS, malaria is even more deadly, particularly for pregnant women and children.

The COTHA Team will be traveling to Uganda in October to deliver over 6,000 nets! Your donation of only $10 provides a net that helps cover a family of 4 for over 5 years!
