THE TEN DOLLAR CLUB - Project Concern Internationa, October 2003

Project Concern$1,030 was given to Project Concern International to assist in the prevention of malaria by purchasing and distributing Insecticide Treated Bed Nets to vulnerable women and children in the Ghanian districts of Wassail West and Wassail Amenfi. Currently, only 29% of households have these nets and only 19% of the nets are in good condition without holes. As a result, approximately 178 families will receive these protective nets and reduce the risk of debilitation or death from this preventable disease. Today, as many as 7,000 people, mostly children, die every day from malaria. According to Project Concern International, “Malaria is the number one killer of children under five in Ghana, and the highest cause of morbidity among pregnant women…. In children under five years, 44.3% of all diseases are due to malaria while it contributes to 22% of under-five mortality.” Malaria causes one in ten deaths among pregnant women in this West African nation.

"You make a living by what you get, you make a life by what you give."

— Winston Churchill

For over 40 years, Project Concern has been saving the lives of millions of children and their families around the globe. We create lasting change by building healthy communities and helping people help themselves.

“A mother came to me with a baby who had a cough. I was able to count the breaths and realized that this child had difficulty breathing. I referred the mother to the clinic. Later she told me, ‘You saved my baby’s life.’”

– PCI/Ghana Community Based Agent in Wassa West District of Ghana

Project ConcernMultiply the Impact of Your Giving
Today, you have the opportunity to help even more children and families who are in urgent need of lifesaving health services. For every dollar you give through Project Concern's matching grants program, the impact is multiplied almost fourfold. A $50 gift will actually leverage nearly $200 for our programs and critical support services around the world.This means we can reach more children and their families living in desperately impoverished conditions and save thousands more lives.

Your investment in the matching grants program is vital to protect vulnerable children and their families around the world from illness, poverty, malnutrition, and even death. We are determined to remove the barriers and keep families alive and healthy, but we urgently need your help to do so.

Let's make the most of this opportunity - TODAY
