Our Nothing But Nets campaign travels to Uganda with actor Tom Cavanagh and singer Gavin DeGraw to deliver bed nets to refugees. Malaria is the #1 killer of refugees. Two thirds of the 33 million refugees worldwide live in malaria endemic countries. We are working with the UN Refugee Agency to send lifesaving bed nets to protect refugees.

3 million reasons
UN Foundation's Adrianna Logalbo reports from Cote d'Ivoire, where in February 2008 the country undertook a national integrated measles campaign that provided over 3 million children under the age of 5 with measles vaccines, Vitamin A and de-worming medicine. Together with support from the Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Nothing But Nets has been able to provide 855,000 of those bed nets.
