Truth Tuesday [#5]

I’m planning a party to fundraise money ($1125, to be exact) to buy 200 mosquito nets for the 200 children at the Christian Upliftment School in Uganda, where my husband and I sponsor 4 girls. 

Uganda has the third highest deaths from malaria in Africa, we can help out by getting mosquito net to place around the kids beds, so they won’t be bitten while they sleep (dusk-dawn is prime-time for mosquitos to attack!).

 Mosquito nets  provide a critical line of defense against the spread of malaria. Nets can avert around 50 percent of malaria cases and reduce all-cause child mortality by approximately 18 percent.

    This is a great cause. I can’t stand mosquitos. I have a little pond where my turtle lives and every morning I have to scoop out those tiny little “boats” that are filled with mosquito eggs. They hatch within 24 hours, so I always check so that they won’t have a chance to grow.
