  4. 4. ABOUT THE ANOPHELES MOSQUITO THE MOSQUITO IS THE MOST DEADLY ANIMAL IN THE WORLD. THE ANOPHELES LIVES IN HOT, SWAMP-FILLED AREAS OR ANYWHERE AROUND WATER.

ALSO, IF THAT FAMILY WORKS IN AGRICULTURE, LIKE 65% OF THE POPULATION DOES, THEY WILL PRODUCE 40% LESS CROPS DUE TO A MALARIA STRICKEN MEMBER.
  6. 6. HOW CAN WE HELP? OUR ORGANIZATION’S GOAL IS TO ESTABLISH MALARIA SPECIFIC CLINICS IN GHANA, TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MALARIA STRICKEN VICTIMS. OUR TEAMS WILL DISTRIBUTE TREATMENTS TO LOWER INCOME FAMILIES WHO LIVE IN URBAN AREAS OF THE COUNTRY. THERE ARE A VARIETY OF MEDICINES SUCH AS CHLOROQUINE THAT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED BY OUR CLINICS. PESTICIDES AND PESTICIDE TREATED NETS WILL BE OFFERED AS WELL TO PROTECT CHILDREN.
  7. 7. MALARIA STATISTICS OVER A HALF A MILLION PEOPLE DIE FROM MALARIA EACH YEAR, AND AMONG THE VICTIMS MOST OF THEM ARE SMALL CHILDREN. 90% OF ALL THESE DEATHS OCCUR IN THE SUB-SAHARAN REGION OF AFRICA. MALARIA IS ONE OF THE TOP 3 KILLERS OF SMALL CHILDREN IN ALL OF AFRICA. MALARIA KILLS 1,500 KIDS EVERYDAY. MALARIA PREVENTS KIDS FROM GOING TO SCHOOL MORE THAN OTHER DISEASES. MALARIA COSTS AFRICA 12 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.
