“My net protected a family from malaria. What is your net worth?”
That’s the slogan on a t-shirt designed by RIJC students as part of a campaign to raise awareness about malaria and funds to buy and distribute nets. A second shirt shows an ex-ed out mosquito; underneath is written “Wanted Dead”.
The shirt sales – as well as other proceeds from the first RIJC “NETS for NETS” carnival – are being used to support a Malaria Control Programme along the Thai-Burmese border. The programme is organised by Child’s Dream & Diversethics. This is the second time ONE (SINGAPORE) is collaborating with these charities.
