Against Malaria

Charity Partner
This April we raised £4,653.73 for our charity partner Against Malaria There are lots of awful statistics we could share with you about malaria. We’re going to avoid those in this post and focus on an encouraging one: In the past fifteen years malaria mortality rates have dropped by about half. Malaria is preventable and a net is the most effective and efficient means of prevention. We’ve been annually fundraising for Against Malaria since 2011. In that time we’ve raised a total of £21,367, providing enough Long Life Insecticide Nets to protect over 26,000 people. The number of deaths likely to have been avoided by these nets is over fifty and the number of cases of malaria over 23,000.

The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is GiveWellGiving What We Can and The Life You Can Save’s top-ranked charity and has been for twelve  years. AMF is frequently described as the global Effective Altruism movement’s #1 charity given the top-billing it achieves year after year judged on impact and effectiveness. AMF’s running costs (which are small as a result of the extraordinary efficiency with which AMF operates, and which are ~1% of revenues each year) are funded independently meaning 100% of public donations buys nets. Nets are distributed though carefully selected partner organisations with high levels of data-driven accountability and transparency accompanying each net distribution. Be One Percent’s donations to AMF, and the specific net distributions they fund, are shown here. Donations welcome!
