ePestSolutions Teams Up with Nets for Africa to Supply Mosquito Nets to Families at Risk
EPestSolutions, provider of professional quality pest control products for homeowners and the general public, has created a new charitable division that will allow customers to play a key role in the company’s mission to provide mosquito nets to African families considered to be at risk of exposure to malaria.
EPestSolutions is teaming up with Nets For Africa to supply mosquito nets to families in Sub-Saharan Africa, where malaria is estimated to kill one child every 30 seconds, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO).
EPestSolutons is in the final stages of development of adding a new component to its web site that will allow customers the option of donating $10.00 at the online check-out counter to be used for the purchase of one mosquito net that will be distributed through Nets For Africa to a family in need at no cost.
”When we were approached by our friends at nets4africa.com and asked to find a way to assist with this important project, we just couldn’t say no and we immediately jumped aboard,” said Cindy Reyna, ePestSolutions co-founder. “While many nations across the globe have managed to eradicate malaria, the continent of Africa has not, and, consequently, this otherwise preventable disease is creating an enormous burden, economically, and in the toll of lives lost.”
According to WHO, the spread of malaria across Africa is costing the nation roughly $12 billion annually, killing approximately 320 people a day in the country of Uganda alone. Previous campaigns have failed to attack the root cause of the problem: Mosquitoes. Adult mosquitoes and the plasmodium parasites they carry are being passed to humans despite efforts to kill them.
Mosquito nets offer a relatively inexpensive and effective means for attacking the cause of this deadly disease.
About Nets For Africa: Nets For Africa was established to generate funding to purchase mosquito nets for Sub-Saharan African families who are at risk of contracting malaria. Through partnerships with companies such as ePestSolutions, Nets For Africa is preparing to distribute roughly 3,000 mosquito bed nets over the course of the next 30 days.
