AMF recognized by Her Majesty The Queen - Commonwealth Point of Light

AMF is delighted and honored that founder Rob Mather has been presented with the Commonwealth's 53rd Point of Light award, representing the United Kingdom. The Commonwealth Points of Light are awarded by Her Majesty the Queen to recognize outstanding individual volunteers who are making a change in their community.

The award for Rob was presented by HRH Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, on 16th April, the opening day of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre.

Rob said:

“It is an honour to have the work of the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) recognised in this way. Many people and organisations have supported AMF in a voluntary capacity over many years and this recognition is of them also as AMF would not have been able to contribute in the way it has without them.

“All of us at AMF are passionate about contributing to the reduction and eventual elimination of malaria. My own motivation has been simple. My four children go to sleep at night where a mosquito bite would lead to an annoying itch. Many other people have children and family members for whom the consequences of a mosquito bite could be severe illness, or far worse, so we won’t stop working as a team and with many partners until that has been changed.”
