NBA Star Stephen Curry, Nothing But Nets Deliver Bed Nets to Protect Refugee Camp from Malaria
Date:8/21/2013

Dar es Salaam/Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Thirty-eight thousand nets. Sixty-eight thousand lives. These are the impressive stats put up by Stephen Curry, the NBA’s single-season three-point-record-holder, as he traveled to Tanzania with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign.

Curry, of the Golden State Warriors, has been a Nothing But Nets Champion for many years. He traveled with the campaign to the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp situated in northwestern Tanzania to deliver life-saving anti-malaria bed nets to residents because malaria is so deadly there. Nothing But Nets supporters – many inspired by Curry – donated money to ensure everyone in the camp is protected by nets.

“After working for several years to raise awareness to fight malaria, it was inspiring to meet people who are at risk for this easily-preventable disease and need our help,” said Curry. “I donated three nets for every three-pointer I made during the 2012-13 season, and now every time I hit a three I will think of the families I met in Tanzania. As a father, I do everything I can to keep my daughter safe. The parents I met in Nyarugusu do the same, but they need help to protect their children from malaria. That’s why I’m challenging all my fans to get involved and support Nothing But Nets.”

Nyarugusu Refugee Camp, located in the Kigoma region, is managed by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Sixty-eight thousand refugees live there, most of whom fled the Democratic Republic of Congo, while a smaller number fled Burundi. The distribution of nets was made possible by a partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Tanzania Red Cross Society. Malaria is the most pressing health challenge in the camp – the disease kills the highest number of people and the highest number of children under five. Last year, 62,000 cases of malaria were recorded among the camp’s popula
