Earlier this year, Ecorazzi reported that Mandy Moore had accepted a position as Ambassador for PSI (Population Services International) and was helping to spread the word about malaria prevention.

Malaria — a disease transmitted by mosquitoes — causes 350 million to 500 million illnesses per year and kills more than one million people — mostly children under the age of five.

To continue her work as ambassador, Moore recently traveled to Africa in partnership with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to distribute thousands of long-lasting, insecticide-treated mosquito nets.

“It was an honor to join this trip to help distribute long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets to help prevent malaria which continues to kill nearly one million people every year,” said Mandy Moore. “This week I’ve met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep.”

So far, Nothing But Nets has helped distribute more than 3.5 million bed nets in 25 countries across Africa. To learn more about how you can get involved, visit NothingButNets.net.
