A simple way to make a huge difference in the lives of people living in the villages of Gabon, Bongolo Hospital and Democratic Republic of Congo.
A child dies every minute in Africa from malaria.
Malaria is the 2nd leading cause of death from infectious diseases in Africa, after HIV/AIDS.
3.3 billion people, half the world’s population, live in areas at risk of malaria transmission.
35 countries (30 in sub-Saharan Africa and 5 in Asia) account for 98% of global malaria deaths.
89% of the malaria deaths worldwide occur in Africa.
Mosquitoes transmit the virus from dusk till dawn through their bite.
If left untreated within 24 hours malaria symptoms can intensify into more severe, life threatening symptoms that can lead to death.
Malaria is 100% preventable.
Provide long lasting mosquito nets treated with insecticide to those without access to them to protect them from this preventable yet deadly disease. Educate about the causes of malaria and how to prevent infection.
How it works:
Money is donated in the United States and sent to ministry partners in Gabon and Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.
Gabon - Mosquito nets are purchased in Gabon. The nets and education for their proper use are delivered to remote villages through ministry based in Libreville, near the ocean in the northwest of Gabon. In 2019, Project Sunset expanded to Bongolo Hospital, which is owned by the national C&MA church, and is located south of the equator in the town of Lebamba. This hospital serves one of the poorest regions in Gabon.
Democratic Republic of Congo - money for nets and education for the proper use of the nets is sent thru Nebobongo Hospital, a Christian-run hospital that is under the authority of the regional church, CECCA-16 in the northeast corner of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Sarah Lewan is the founder of Project Sunset. In 2012, she set out to raise funds to purchase mosquito nets for the people of Africa, and since that time over 1,800 nets and over $10,000 toward malaria education programs have been provided through Project Sunset and E4 Project in the villages of Gabon and in Democratic Republic of Congo. We have joined with Sarah to raise funds with these two partners, to provide these life-saving mosquito nets.
