The Baby NETwork
Welcome to The Baby NETwork!
Are you looking for a gift to honor a newborn baby or young child? Consider a gift that could also save the life of another baby or young child. Honor your little ones with the gift of a donation to send a bed net to Africa to protect a baby or young child from the malaria mosquitoes.
Approximately one million children die in Africa from malaria each year, that’s 3000 children dying every day, while many more are sickened.
Insecticide-treated bed nets spread over the beds of the most at-risk – infants, children and pregnant women – can protect these individuals from the mosquitoes that carry the malaria parasites.
A long-lasting insecticide-treated bed net can be purchased, transported and distributed to a baby in Africa for as little as $10.00.
The Baby NETwork, in partnership with Malaria No More, is offering an opportunity for friends, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to become members of a network to help eradicate malaria one baby at a time.
At The White House Summit on Malaria, Laura Bush said, “Ending the malaria epidemic is an ambitious goal–but one we can, and must, achieve. By defeating malaria, the American people can help people in Africa enjoy greater prosperity and good health. Mothers here can help mothers in Africa watch their children grow healthy and strong. Children here can help children in Africa delight in the same pleasures they enjoy–going to school, playing games and making friends…and keeping friends.”
This short video, “The Gift of Growing Up”, will tell you about the efforts being made to bring an end to the malaria epidemic in Africa.
