Provide Safe Sleep
Around the world, unless you get into the higher altitudes, the mosquitos are there--and they carry many diseases-not just malaria. Most of them fly out at dusk and feed all night until right at dawn. They are attracted by warmth and carbon dioxide--both of which are given off by the human body. Awake, you can defend yourself, but asleep, you are defenseless against these tiny felons. A simple mosquito net in good condition protects well and inexpensively for 2-4 children.
CCCI wants to ensure that as many people as possible have protection from the mosquitos-since there is no feasible way to eradicate all of them without harming the environment. Your gift of $5 will purchase 2 nets for people to sleep comfortably and peacefully under the net without worry of getting sick from some dreadful diseases such as malaria, encephalitis, dengue fever, and others. Parents will know that their children are going to be able to grow up strong and healthy because of your gift. You may count on their eternal gratitude to you. These nets are always a source of much pride in a household when visitors come and are usually one of the first things to be displayed for inspection.
