In the United States, mosquitoes can be quite a nuisance but in other parts of the world, a mosquito bite can bring a host of illnesses, some deadly. As a part of the Mosquito Squad franchise, we at Mosquito Squad of West St. Louis County are proud to be part of a company that focuses on giving back. Mosquito Squad has partnered with Malaria No More, a nonprofit global health organization focused on eliminating malaria deaths on the continent of Africa.
One disease Americans no longer have to worry about is malaria, which was eliminated in the United States over half a century ago. But for the rest of the world, especially for those living in tropical and subtropical regions, malaria is far from ancient history. Malaria kills over half a million people a year, most being pregnant women and children. On the African continent, more than 250 million people contract malaria on annual basis. One thousand children under the age of five die from malaria on a daily basis.
The Mosquito Squad mantra: Passion. Service. Education. Giving. You can see all four of these values at work in the footage above, where Mosquito Squad franchisees are working together with Malaria No More in Cameroon, Central Africa. Mosquito Squad has raised over $200,000 since 2012 to help in this fight against malaria, and in this two minute video, you will see how Mosquito Squad is making a difference, and why we must continue in community engagement.
We are proud to support the ongoing efforts of Mosquito Squad and Malaria No More, as they continue to give the children of Cameroon, Central Africa a better chance at a longer, healthier life.
