Dear friends and supporters:

Sixteen students from the University of Lethbridge will travel to rural Malawi in May 2018 where they will work with remote communities to raise awareness about preventing and treating malaria, a parasitic disease transmitted by night-flying mosquitoes.

The students are presently raising funds to purchase insecticide-treated bed nets to distribute to children and pregnant women, as these are the people most at risk for contracting and dying of this disease.

Although each net costs only $15, many people can barely afford to feed their families; hence, the purchase of a net is not feasible. Thus, our students will provide nets for the most vulnerable families, thereby greatly reducing their chances of illness.

The Malawi program positively affects everyone involved, not only the people of Malawi, but also U of L students – who are ambassadors of global health promotion at the local and international level.

Sincerely,


Dr. Jean Harrowing | Faculty of Health Sciences
