MOSQUITO SQUAD Central MA DONATES $1 ON BEHALF OF OUR CUSTOMERS FOR EVERY TREATMENT PERFORMED.
As mosquito control experts, we know that, beside being an annoyance, mosquitoes carry many potentially deadly diseases, the most prevalent being malaria. Despite malaria being mostly eradicated in the US over 50 years ago, over 250 million citizens of African nations contract malaria each year, with over 2,000 children alone being killed each day.
A few years ago, Mosquito Squad forged a relationship with Malaria No More, a nonprofit organization with the lofty, but very admirable goal of ending malaria deaths in Africa. While we fight the bite for our client’s everyday here in the US, it’s more based around the nuisance of mosquitoes rather than the life threatening dangers (though they certainly still exist, even more so with ticks).
We know that just $1 can save a life – that’s why we donate $1 for every treatment that we perform.
Over the last three years, Mosquito Squad’s efforts have saved nearly 100,000 lives. In January 2014, Mosquito Squad launched what we like to call Dread’s Challenge: a three-year initiative to save an additional 250,000 lives. Here in Central Mass. we donated over $17,000 in 2014 and are on pace to donate more than $25,000 in 2015 as well as $36,000 in 2016.
Please help contribute to this great cause by donating at SwatMalaria.net. Again, every $1 contribution funds the delivery and administration of a malaria test and the ACT treatment needed to successfully treat the disease and save a life.
