Against Malaria

This summer, starting July 9, Mark Rendell will be hiking across the south of France and into northern Spain along 900 km of the medieval Way of St. James. 

With your help and sponsorship he is hoping to raise money for the Against Malaria Foundation. 

Malaria is one of the world’s deadliest diseases killing over 1.5 million people a year...
but it is also one of the most preventable. 

The Against Malaria Foundation raises money to buy and distribute bed nets specially treated with insecticide that offer one of the best ways of preventing malarial infection. 
A net, which usually lasts between four and five years, costs less than $5 to purchase!

100% of money raised goes straight to buying bed nets. 
The Against Malaria Foundation is rated 3rd on Give Well‘s most effective and transparent charities, and is highly recommended by Giving What We Can

Thanks for your support. Let’s see how many nets we can buy!
