Executive Director of cbm US congratulates UN on Malaria Campaign
Date:4/24/2008

GREENVILLE, SC, April 24 /PRNewswire/ - Ron Nabors, Chief Executive Officer of cbm US, congratulates the United Nations for teaming up with religious, business and sports leaders in a new effort to send insecticide-treated bed nets to Africa to prevent millions of deaths from malaria, ahead of the first-ever inaugural World Malaria Day on Friday, April 25, 2008.

Every year, malaria kills more than 1.5 million people in Africa. According to the World Health Organization, it's estimated that 90% of deaths from malaria occur in Africa among young children under the age of five.

But it's been proven that insecticide-treated mosquito nets hung over beds are an inexpensive yet reliable way to help protect these vulnerable children from malaria.

"Mosquito nets are an excellent preventative measure," confirms Nabors "For only $10.00, a net (including transport costs) can protect the precious life of a child."

Those who have survived malaria now have many secondary diseases. The most common consequences of malaria include anaemia, epilepsy and learning difficulties. Cerebral malaria is a severe form of the disease that is characterized by coma and convulsions.

Malaria also infects and destroys red blood cells and can damage other vital organs. 7% of children who survive cerebral malaria are left with permanent neurological problems such as epilepsy and cerebral palsy. They can also go blind and develop speech problems.

cbm needs help today to prevent Malaria from robbing the lives of more young children living in poverty in Africa. It's estimated that every 30 seconds, an African child dies from this preventable and treatable disease.

cbm is the leading organization educating, treating and preventing disabilities from Malaria.
