Washington, DC Community Leaders Commit to Send 10,000 Anti-Malarial Bed Nets to Refugees in Africa
Date:6/16/2009

Councilman Jack Evans proclaims it Nothing But Nets Week in DC; Michelle Fenty recognizes all-star youth supporters.

Washington, DC (Vocus) June 16, 2009 -- During a public rally today, co-hosted by the United Nations Foundation and its Nothing But Nets campaign, Councilman Jack Evans officially proclaimed June 13-June 23, 2009 “Nothing But Nets Week” in the District of Columbia. Also at the event, DC’s First Lady Mrs. Michelle Fenty recognized local youth for their commitment to Nothing But Nets –- a global, grassroots campaign to prevent malaria -– and commended the young supporters for becoming global citizens. The rally brought together a variety of local leaders and community members to announce DC’s commitment to send 10,000 long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets to protect displaced families in Africa, where malaria is the number one killer of refugees.



“As we near World Refugee Day on June 20, I am proud to see my fellow Washingtonians join the effort to prevent malaria among one of the world’s most vulnerable populations,” said DC Councilman Jack Evans. “Leaders can step forward, but it is the work of everyday citizens that has the power to make a significant difference in addressing global challenges like malaria.”

Over one million refugees in Africa have been displaced due to the spreading crisis in Darfur and other regional conflicts. Due to inadequate shelter, unsanitary living conditions and lack of medical care and supplies, refugees are particularly susceptible to contracting malaria and dying from the disease. This year, in partnership with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), Nothing But Nets is committed to sending nets to refugees in camps throughout Africa.
