Sevenly is an organic funding movement that raises capital and awareness for the world's greatest causes.This week, Sevenly is supporting Compassion International. This campaign specifically targets the Malaria Intervention Program - also known as "Bite Back!"
ProblemEvery year more than 1 million people die from Malaria. 3 of every 4 deaths are children living in Africa. Malaria is a mosquito transmitted disease that inflicts high fevers, shaking chills, flu-like symptoms and anemia. There is a simple solution in preventing and fighting Malaria, but many families in Africa live in poverty and can not afford treatment or prevention.
SolutionWith $7,000, Compassion International can provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets to hundreds of children. This simple prevention tool will save thousands of children from the painful and potentially fatal disease.
Compassion International's Malaria Intervention program intervenes by:
- Providing households at risk with treated mosquito nets
- Educating family members on malaria prevention
- Treating those suffering from malaria, chagas disease and dengue fever
For every t-shirt purchased, Sevenly will donate $7 dollars to help provide a mosquito net to a child in Rwanda. Please check out the video below and make a purchase here.
