Earlier this summer, singer, songwriter, and actress Mandy Moore teamed up with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help stop the outbreak of Malaria in the Central African Republic — a country where a child dies every 30 seconds from the disease.
In recent article on The Huffington Post, Moore discussed the importance of providing insecticide-treated mosquito nets and asked her fans to help make a difference this holiday season.
“Ten dollars may not sound like much, but the cost is too high for most people at risk of getting malaria, many of whom live on less than $1 a day,” said Moore. ”That $10 goes to Nothing But Nets to purchase a net, deliver it to a family, and educate communities on its importance and use.”
Moore’s goal is to distribute a net to every family in the country by the end of the year.
