Resting in peace
Providing mosquito nets for girls in South Sudan
NCP raised funds to build Queensland Girls Boarding School in 2015. On a
visit in May 2019, NCP learned that every week, 5-6 girls were coming down
with malaria. This is a serious disease that kills over a million children in
Africa every year.
Why were they being infected? Some 400 of the girls and their families
couldn't afford a $6 mosquito net to keep them safe while sleeping -
which is when the mosquitoes are biting. We immediately launched a
Facebook campaign to meet this need, and our network responded,
providing the $2500 needed so these girls could rest in peace.
Problem solved? Not quite. As nets tear and new girls come to school, more
nets will continue to be needed.
$6 - not a lot for us, but a VERY big deal to them
Make a donation - get your class or congregation or club involved - help these young women rest in peace!
