Under the net

Malaria kills someone every 30 seconds, usually a child under five years old. Malaria is preventable and curable which is why Porridge and Pens is supplying mosquito nets to orphanages and schools in Kumasi Ghana. 

In 2012 and 2018, Porridge and Pens trustee Laura Collins caught malaria on her trips to Ghana. Laura was fortunate enough to have the funds for her treatment – £2.50.

Because prevention is better than cure, for £20 Porridge and Pens can buy a good quality, pop up mosquito net that’s sprayed with insect pesticides and guaranteed to last for 10 years. 

Porridge and Pens has supplied the All Nations Orphanage with  mosquito nets which has had a huge impact with far fewer children catching malaria. We now want to supply 130 pop up nets to the children of the Brightlingsea School – are you able to help us?

This is a typical urban slum. One of our Girl Power students lives in this settlement. In time, as she goes through her education she will be able to move away from an area like this and work towards creating a financially stable future for herself and her family. ... See MoreSee Less
