MASECO donates funds to four charities for every new household that MASECO takes on. Each new household receives a letter with information about our panel of charities, explaining the work of the charities, and the contribution that MASECO will be making.
Please see below an update on the charities and how the donations are being used.
Against Malaria Foundation
Malaria affects almost half of the world’s population and claims 655,000 lives every year, with over 90% of these deaths in Africa. It is also the number one killer of pregnant women in Africa and every life lost is needless as malaria is a preventable and treatable disease. The good news is that, today, over 485 children’s lives are saved from malaria every day, thanks to extraordinary international efforts to fight the disease. Globally, malaria deaths have dropped by 26% since 2000 and in Africa deaths have been cut by a third. Making just a small donation of $6 allows the AMF to purchase and distribute one net that will save a life. This is one of the most cost effective and impactful ways we can think of to help save lives. We are committed to maintaining this momentum.
MASECO’s total donation to date : $2,160
MASECO’s donation has provided 772 mosquito nets which will help protect people from contracting malaria in some of the poorest parts of Africa.
