Singer-songwriter and actress Mandy Moore is in the Central African Republic distributing life-saving mosquito nets with the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign and Population Services International right now.

The United Nations has identified an urgent need for anti-malaria mosquito nets in the Central African Republic. Mandy Moore, PSI, and Nothing But Nets are raising awareness to fill this critical gap by distributing 837,000 nets—one for every family who needs one. Malaria is a leading killer in Africa, where a child dies every 45 seconds from the disease. Long-lasting, insecticide-treated mosquito nets are one of the most cost-effective ways of preventing malaria. It costs only $10 to purchase and distribute a bed net and to educate communities about its proper use.

Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006.
