Next week I will be taking part in the Live Below The Line Fundraising Challenge again and I will be living off £1 a day for 5 days to help raise awareness about people around the world living in extreme poverty. This is what I did last year:
I will also be trying to raise money again for my chosen charity, Malaria No More, to try to get more bed nets in places like this hospital in Malawi below:
When I lived in Malawi and visited people in hospital there it was very rare to see any mosquito nets, even in the maternity wards. My brother caught malaria while we were living in Malawi, but fortunately he recovered after being given the right treatment. I’m doing this challenge so that other children can also receive life-saving treatment for malaria. No parent should lose their child to a disease that is easy to prevent and only costs £1 to treat.
Malaria is a leading cause of child deaths and poverty in Africa, but together we can make malaria no more. If you would like to donate and help prevent malaria, please visit my Live Below the Line page here.
