In the places where malaria is endemic, it continues to wreak havoc. Many people, fortunately, live in places where malaria is not endemic, and to these people, the experience of malaria is tangential: you hear about it on the news, you may need to get an extra vaccination, or you may know that it has something to do with mosquitoes. This tangential experience, unfortunately, is far from universal, and to the people who are at risk of malaria day in and day out, its terrors are all too familiar.

Malaria can lead to life-long learning disabilities, coma, anemia, and even death. Costing upwards of a million lives each year, malaria is most commonly fund in Sub-Saharan Africa, a region already beset by problems on all sides, from a lack of food and water to a lack of vaccines, which only serves to exacerbate the malaria problem.

We are dedicated to working to prevent malaria by making malaria vaccines more available. To us it makes sense that if these vaccines are around, the people who need them most should have access to them. That, however, costs money, which is why we are working to raise as much funding as we can. Help us prevent malaria today!
