In emergency situations like floods, when families have already lost just about everything, mosquitoes can make it worse by transmitting deadly diseases,
like malaria. Our emergency teams are able to respond quickly in these disasters by providing essential supplies, including insecticide-treated nets, that keep mossies at bay and prevent malaria.
“I got the mosquito net … Before, we didn’t really know anything about how malaria is caught. I’m very happy and thankful that my child is now safe thanks to Oxfam. What makes me really happy too, is that the mosquito net is treated with insecticide, so my daughter is also protected against other insects which can bite.”
