Bite Back

Today we are going to talk a little bit about those pesky nuisances that appear each summer, depending where you live.


That’s right…let’s talk about mosquitoes.

Their bites are annoying and leave us scratching for days, but in some countries their bites can be deadly.

Take a moment to educate yourself.

If you have another couple minutes, watch this one too.

Talk to your kids about how you can Bite Back. Look around Compassion’s Bite Back website and brainstorm ways your family can raise money to buy nets.


Also, be sure to read Out of the Slums of Kenya on Compassion’s blog. This is an inspiring post written by Joshua Miago, a formerly sponsored child from Kenya and a former LDP student. Joshua is currently living in the Netherlands, working to create a vaccine to create malaria.

Have you done something to raise awareness about the fight against malaria? If so, I'd love to hear your story.
