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

tion of 68,000.

Also joining the trip was Nothing But Nets co-founder and ESPN columnist Rick Reilly.

"How do you sum up a life-changing trip?" asked Reilly. "We met people at Camp Nyarugusu who literally cried when we gave them their net. We met women who'd lost children to malaria, clutching their net like a new diamond necklace. We checked into a hotel an hour away and slept under our own nets and worried about the holes in them. We watched a young NBA superstar, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, get mobbed by kids. They had no idea who he was; they only knew he was going to keep them safe from malaria. We left happy."

Nothing But Nets Director, Chris Helfrich added, “I want to thank all of our partners who made this possible—from supporters who donated to this campaign, to the NBA, to UNHCR, IFRC, and TRCS. Your support will keep the people of Nyarugusu safe for years to come.”
