 "Night Under Nets has just got even more exciting:
The lovely people at Sumitomo Chemical who make the anti-malaria Olyset Net, have announced that:

For every person who walks through the door at Night Under Nets, an anti-malaria bed net will be donated in your name.

Every £5 bed net will protect an entire family from malaria. So you will be saving lives just by turning up! "

About World Malaria Day
April 25th is a day to mark the global effort to provide effective malaria control around the world, and to help turn the tide on up to 1 million entirely preventable deaths affecting mainly women and young children.

The year 2010 marks a critical moment in time. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon has called for universal anti-malaria bed net coverage by the end of the year, we only have a matter of months to achieve this goal. Now is the time to take action. 

World Malaria Day represents a chance for all of us to make a difference. Reducing the impact of malaria will be a major step towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, a set of commitments made by 189 nations across the world made in the year 2000 to build a more just world. These include not only the goal of combating the disease itself, but also goals related to women's and children's rights and health, access to education and the reduction of extreme poverty.

The event organisers say:
"Working together on a shared cause, can also help build trust, understanding and respect between the world’s religions.  Join us on this World Malaria Day – let’s take action together."
