“Malaria kills one million people each year, mostly pregnant women and children in Africa. It costs Africa $30 billion annually. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Universal bed net coverage is the most effective malaria prevention tool.” –Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Malaria
It’s an honor to have been a part of the Malaria Social Media Envoy since it launched on World Malaria Day on April 25th. Since then, we’ve all been tweeting, donating, vlogging and blogging away in order to raise awareness and money for the cause.
Below is a video a bunch of us involved did in April to help spread the word. Watch below to learn more! Thanks again to @catrific, @jason_pollock, @iamkhayyam, @iconic88, @thatdrew, @adventuregirl, @ashong
