The United Nations Foundation (UN Foundation) announced today the launch of Nothing But Nets - a grassroots campaign asking individuals to donate $10 to "send a net, save a life." Each $10 donation pays for an insecticide-treated bed net, distributes it to a family in need in Africa, and provides education on its proper use to prevent malaria. Founding partners of the campaign are NBA Cares, The People of the United Methodist Church, Rotarians Action Group on Malaria and Sports Illustrated.

Except from the RAM January 2006 Newsletter - Funds continue to flow in for the Adopt-a-Village program in PNG and the Solomons. Many Clubs and groups of Clubs are making good use of Matching Grants for the purchase of bednets. Clubs receive Adoption Certificates via Ron Seddon for PNG; and we will soon have a similar document and a "thank you" letter from the Guadalcanal Premier, for the Solomons program. A very special 'thank you' to Richmond who is receiving and acknowledging a large number of cheques very efficiently.
There are several organisations in different parts of the world who contribute to the aims of RAM.
