he Against Malaria Foundation was founded by Rob Mather. He is a husband and father of four that resides in the United Kingdom. Rob learned in 2003 that the equivalent of seven 747 planes of children die from malaria each day. He was astonished at this statistic. In the following months, Rob was dedicated to helping people in need. He then started hosting charitable events that raised funds to purchase screen nets for people in malaria-affected areas of the globe. 16 years later, The Against Malaria Foundation has raised over $198 million dollars which have paid for 90 million screen nets. The Against Malaria Foundation is a transparent charity that contributes 100% of funds raised to purchasing screen nets for those in need. AMF is able to contribute 100% of the funds that are raised to people in need due to the low overhead cost the charity has from the volunteer network. This has allowed the foundation to benefit those in need. The fight to end malaria is making progress as The World Health Organization (WHO) recently reported that 44 countries had less than 10,000 cases of malaria, compared to 37 countries in the previous report. By continuing to support the fight to end this devastating disease, Mirage is excited to directly contribute to people in need and we ask that you do your part in supporting this cause as well.
