Grassroots supporters raise over $1.2 million to deliver 128,000 bed nets to four refugee camps in Kenya

Adrianna Logalbo is joined in Kenya by three representatives of the Union for Reform Judaism, a partner of the grassroots campaign. "We are thankful to join UNHCR and the UN Foundation on this trip to see first-hand the impact of malaria on these refugee camps," said Rabbi Marla Feldman. "It is difficult for the families living in these camps, and with just a $10 donation, we are able to help protect against malaria and offer these parents some piece of mind as they sleep at night with their children."

In September 2008, UNHCR identified an immediate and urgent need for 275,000 long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets for refugees living in 27 refugee camps in Uganda, Sudan, Kenya and Tanzania, where the malaria burden is highest amon
