Sleep is essential for the mental and physical development of all young children.
A simple gift of blankets and mosquito nets could keep them warm and safe from the threat of deadly malaria carrying mosquitoes.
Now, they can be ready to brrrr-ave the cold nights in winter. This bundle includes two mattresses, blankets and pillows so children can sleep soundly, as well as a pair of mosquito nets to keep them safe from malaria.
How this gift helps
Sleeping without a mosquito net in areas where malaria is prevalent can be deadly. Even mild cases can cause serious problems for families living in poverty. “Last year my husband, my children and I got sick with diarrhoea and malaria,” Mrs Houn told ChildFund. “I then spent a lot of money on medical expenses. I am very happy and excited to receive new mosquito nets from ChildFund Cambodia to protect me and my family from insect bites, malaria and dengue fever.”
