Against Malaria is an initiative of the World Swim For Malaria Foundation (WSMF), a charity registered in the UK, US, Australia and a number of other countries. WSMF launched and ran World Swim Against Malaria (WSM) on 3rd Dec 2005 in which more than 250,000 people swam and fundraised. 100% of the US$1.3m raised purchased 270,000 long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) which are now being distributed to protect 540,000 (mainly) children from biting insects when they sleep at night. Through WSFM amazing success at raising funds they have been able to negotiate an incredibly low price of $5.00 a net for nets that will last for 4 to 5 years. As a partner with Against Malaria we too will able to purchase nets for $5.00 each.
In practice, 100% of the funds we receive through Against Malaria will be used to buy long lasting insecticidal (mosquito) nets (LLINs). Further we state they will end up over heads and beds and we will demonstrate that has happened. Transparency is at the heart of what we do.
