One Family Gives $600.00 for Mosquito Nets

Praise God for one couple’s love for children and the cause of Christ in Dono-Manga, Chad. Their generous gift of $600.00 added to the $150.00 from our recent yard sale means that when our dispensary opens next month, fully stocked with drugs, we will also have mosquito nets.

“Malaria, a parasitic disease that causes more than 1 million global deaths yearly, is crippling Africa’s economic growth and perpetuating vicious cycles of poverty. In sub-Saharan Africa, malaria affects mostly young children, with almost 3,000 dying every day – some 20% of all child deaths.” UNICEF

Malaria kills more than a million people worldwide each year—90 percent of them in Africa; 70 percent children under the age of five. Something as simple as sleeping under a mosquito nets reduces the death toll in children under 5 dramatically.

Nets are only 10.00 each. If you would like to provide nets go to our Website at www.hopespringsint.com and click on the PayPal logo to make your donation. You may also send checks to Hope Springs International, 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075.
