Haiti - Earthquake


The immediate needs in Haiti are search and rescue teams and medical aid. Immediate support can be given via the DEC,the Red CrossWorld Vision and others.

In the near to medium term malaria, already a problem in Haiti, is likely to increase significantly due to there being little to stop transmission. News media are quoting teams in Haiti as already concerned about a number of diseases including malaria.

We would like to help.

We have set up a specific donation page. 100% of funds donated here will buy nets for Haiti and we will liaise with the relevant authorities and partners to ensure they are distributed as soon as possible when they are needed, where they are needed.

We are starting the fund with $25,000 as the need is likely to be very large.

If you are able to help, thank you.

 


The Big African Cycle


Peter Gostelow, one of our Against Malaria heroes, is amazing us all by cycling from England to... Cape Town, South Africa, all in aid of AMF. He is making great progress in his cycling adventure and has covered 6,175 km of his 20,000 km challenge through 25 countries along the west African coast.

We are in awe of what Peter has taken on - saddle soreness, flat tyres and all! He keeps us regularly updated and entertained via his blog (The Big African Cycle). His most recent post, aptly entitled 'The Wacky Contenders', describes how he started 2010 by meeting some interesting characters, while applying for his visa for Mauritiana in north west Africa.

"There was a sizeable crowd waiting outside the embassy at 8.30am on Monday morning. Considering recent news I  expected to be the only western face who would be applying for a Mauritanian visa. Instead a colourful bunch of characters, mostly with their own vehicles,  (equally colourful) had lined the road of this Rabat address..."

New video of a distribution in Namulonge, Uganda


We have just added a great new video documenting a recent net distribution in Uganda. 600 nets were distributed in the village of Namulonge, following on from a 400 net distribution in Nov 2008. You can also see photos of the distribution, supporting documents and a list of all the donors who funded the nets.

We'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our fantastic band of video and photo editors. If anyone would like to help out by selecting and captioning sets of photos, or editing videos (video experience required) you can find out more on our volunteers page.
