Be the Peace - Be the Hope is Helping to Save Lives from Malaria with Nothing But Nets

Be the Peace - Be the Hope is teaming up with Nothing But Nets to help send life-saving bed nets to protect refugee families from malaria in Burkina Faso. 

Every 2 minutes a child dies from malaria, an entirely preventable disease. The easiest, most cost-effective solution to help protect children and families from malaria is a net. It only costs $10 to send one life-saving bed net to protect a family from malaria. 

Join us in saving refugee lives in Burkina Faso from this devastating disease!

Learn more about Nothing But Nets:

Now in its tenth year, Nothing But Nets is the world’s largest, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a disease which claims the life of a child every two minutes. Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006. Nothing But Nets raises awareness, funds, and voices to protect families, leading the movement to defeat malaria worldwide. We are proud donors to Nothing But Nets work and in 2016  Burkina Faso - the location of Be the Peace’s art collaborative - is a focus country of Nothing But Nets efforts.
