It’s incredible. Just four weeks ago I was with the United Nations Foundation and Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls making an emergency appeal for nets to cover more than 200,000 refugees in Chad. Without insecticide-treated nets, it was estimated that 25% of these refugees would die from malaria.
Thanks to your generous and immediate response, we have raised the funds needed for 40,000 nets – nets that will literally save lives. Our partners in Chad – UNHCR, UNICEF and MENTOR – are getting the life-saving nets that you have supplied to children and families in need. Stay tuned for reports from the refugee camps, but in the meantime, on behalf of the partners of the Nothing But Net campaign, THANK YOU.
