MOSQUITO NET DISTRIBUTION UPDATE
1st Quarter 2011
Kairos is about saving lives in
Africa. Malaria is transmitted by mosquitoes and is the #1 killer of children under the age of 5 years. A child dies every 30 seconds from Malaria. This disease is not treatable, but is preventable with a mosquito net. Thus the idea for a sustaining micro business that began in September 2010. Kairos is Greek and means “God’s appointed time.” This is the appointed time to provide mosquito nets to save a child’s life by simply purchasing a Kairos bracelet.
Kairos purchases beads made in
. Ghanaian women produce the bracelets and the jewelry is returned to the Ghana . For each piece sold, a mosquito net is purchased, returned to US Africa, and distributed free to families. The idea for this cottage business to give a hand-up and not a hand-out came as a result of doing medical missions in West Africa. All Kairos proceeds go to purchase nets.
To-date, 1,000 mosquito nets have been delivered to
West Africa. A group of seven Tulsa women just returned from a trip to on April 7-14 to distribute nets to villages and conduct a one-day medical clinic where over 200 people were treated. Ghana
