During floods, mosquito numbers can multiply and the threat of infectious mosquito-borne diseases, like malaria and dengue fever, turns deadly.
This gift will help prevent the spread of deadly diseases during a humanitarian crisis.
It will also help provide vulnerable people like children, older people and the sick with whatever supports they need to stay safe.
This gift is available as a printed gift card or as a beautifully designed ecard. Simply make your choice during checkout.
Prefer to order by phone? Call 1850 30 40 55 (Republic of Ireland) or 0800 0 30 40 55 (Northern Ireland) between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
All gifts can also be purchased at your local Oxfam shop.
HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?
The money raised by this gift will go into our Saving Lives fund, providing what’s needed most in emergency situations around the world, including water, sanitation, shelter, food and mosquito nets.
Jane Bean, Oxfam Public Health Technical Advisor, explains how mosquito nets save lives: “More than four million children die from malaria every year and pregnant women can suffer early miscarriages and complications due to malaria.
“If those at risk slept under long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets, the number of preventable deaths and illness could be considerably reduced. Oxfam uses treated bed nets endorsed by the World Health Organisation.”
