For people who live in places where mosquitoes carry painful, life-threatening illnesses like malaria and Dengue fever, a mosquito bite can be a death sentence. Every 50 seconds someone around the world dies of malaria. 90 percent of those people are children. An inexpensive, insecticide-treated mosquito net will let a child sleep safely.
