New video from Gambia

We have just received a good video in from a recent distribution in Gambia. You can see our page that covers this distribution here - http://www.againstmalaria.com/Distribution.aspx?DistributionID=134 As with all our distributions not only can you see pictures or video, you can also see who contributed to these specific nets as well as the proposal and completion reports from the distribution partners. This is all part of our commitment that 100 per cent of money raised buys nets, they end up over beds and we can prove that it happened.

International elite swimmers behind World Swim Against Malaria

Some of the world's elite swimmers are behind the 2008 World Swim Against Malaria. This is a video they have just released, produced with the help of Speedo.

It's not about swimming fast, or far, but about being part of one million people swimming.  So please join them.

Speedo and Alek Wek are swimming

Speedo International is one of our longest-standing corporate supporters and has just announced a fantastic campaign to support the 2008 swim. Speedo has produced a World Swim Against Malaria swimwear line which is being promoted by supermodel Alex Wek and photographer Daniela Federici. Daniela has produced a powerful image of Sudanese-born Alek wearing the swimsuit and Alek herself is also organising a swim and setting up a fundraising page.

In keeping with the spirit of the entire operation of World Swim, 100% of Speedo’s profits from the sale of the swimwear will come to the Against Malaria Foundation and 100% will buy nets. 

Speedo has also launched its own Swim Around the World Challenge - which you can support by joining on-line at http://www.worldswimagainstmalaria.com/Speedo

Here is a copy of Speedo's press release.

Here also are high resolution images of the four shots released.
