Our Mission

To participate in the global eradication of malaria in the next decade.

Our Vision

The world can be scary. But it is also full of wonderful people who can make a difference. We believe that no one should suffer from preventable diseases because of social, economic or geopolitical circumstances beyond their control. We believe that women and children are often the first victims of poverty and, more often than not, treated as little more than collateral damage. We know we can do our part to change that on a daily basis.
