Malaria is a parasitic disease that involves high fevers, shaking chills, flu-like symptoms, and anemia. The World Health Organization has estimated that in 2010, there were 219 million documented cases of malaria. That year, the disease killed between 660,000 and 1.2 million people, many of whom were children in Africa. With the average Nigerian earning less than $20 a month, purchasing a mosquito net is the last thing on their mind. With the purchase and installation of these nets, fewer lives are lost and more women and children can stay healthy.
