Coronavirus

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has had some, but currently only a moderate, effect on bednet production estimated to be one month but, given planning margins, distribution dates are not affected.

Two of our manufacturers were forced to shut down their manufacturing plant in compliance with government regulations, despite being geographically distant from the most-affected areas.

Since putting in place protective measures and equipment for office and factory workers, they have applied successfully to restart work.

We have not been informed of any disruption to other manufacturers but are monitoring the situation closely with our production and in-country partners and will update again in the case of any changes.


500,000th donation!


We have just passed 500,000 donations received since AMF started and the donation that took us past that milestone was one from Vancouver, Canada! Thank you!

We have also just passed US$ 238 million raised, with this coming from over 130,000 people in 192 countries!

This equates to the funding of more than 108 million nets to protect 194 million people and an expected impact, once all nets are distributed, of more than 52 to 62 million cases of malaria averted, 72,000 to 82,000 lives saved, and economic improvement of US$2.8billion.

As always, our sincere thanks to everyone for their wonderful support and generosity.
