Location: Kalonga, UG

Budget: $7500.00

Still Needed: $0.00

Goal: 1500 families are now protetcted from malaria and other life-threatening diseases.

How You Can Help: {tag_what's needed}

Malaria takes the lives of over 100,000 people in Uganda each year, and the majority of these are children. The best way to prevent these diseases is by using nets which offer continual protection against mosquitoes, flies, and other insects.  Help protect an entire family from life-threatening diseases with one net.

We have good news!  We recently secured a new distributor who can provide nets at a much lower cost, so every dollar donated is going to go further.  Each net now costs only $7.50. 

Last year's Journey of Compassion team distributed 450 nets over two days.  At the end of each day, there were many people left who did not receive a net.  This year, we are hoping to fully meet the need in the villages where we are ministering (we will be going to new villages this year).  We estimate that 1,000 nets would meet the need.  The Uganda 2015 Journey of Compassion team arrives in Uganda on July 6th.  Let's see if we can fully supply the need by then.
