Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance—they are the deadliest animal in the world. By spreading diseases like malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis, they kill over 600,000 people every year. Another 200 million people are incapacitated for days at a time.
If a person is given a mosquito net, they can wrap their bed with it. This allows them to sleep without being bitten. This reduces exposure to mosquitoes and decreases the chances of catching diseases, especially among children.
Every $10 donated is enough for GFA to provide a mosquito net to a family in need. This will be given in parts of South Asia most impacted by mosquitos.
Since 1979, GFA has existed to fulfill one passion: seeing communities in Asia discover the same joy, hope and lasting peace we’ve found in Christ.
We serve to equip missionaries to minister throughout Asia. The projects funded through myGFA each play a significant part in helping missionaries serve more effectively and in transforming communities with the love of Christ.
