Not only does Malaria cause hundreds of thousands of needless deaths but it is also a cause of poverty and a major hindrance to economic development with international studies revealing a fivefold difference between the average per capita GDP of countries without Malaria and those where it is common.
Over the last twenty-five years Money for Madagascar has raised funds to distribute cheap, effective mosquito nets to those that need them most. A mosquito net costs only one pound and can effectively protect a bedful of Malagasy people from Malaria for years to come.
