Making Malaria No More

"Every minute -- in this minute - a mother, a father, is losing a child to malaria... why should any parent, from Ghana to the UK, have to face that?" Jo Yirrell, British mum and Malaria No More UK Special Ambassador.
This is Jerry, she lost her son to Malaria when he was working in a school in Ghana. He gave away his Malaria tablets to the children in the school as he wanted to help them, and now Jerry is continuing his wish.
Shortly after returning from his trip, Harry died. No parent should lose their child to a disease that is easy to prevent and costs £1 to treat. 
Malaria No More UK is part of the global fight against malaria. We believe that no parent should lose their child to a disease that is easy to prevent and costs £1 to treat.  So far we've helped to protect over 10 million people from the disease. Huge progress has already been made in the fight to make malaria no more and our generation could end it forever.
