Together, we can stop this.
Malaria No More Canada wishes to thank all of our donors and supporters for joining us in the fight against malaria. Since MNM Canada was founded in 2008, significant strides have been made globally toward the eradication of malaria. The World Health Organization in December 2014 issued its annual World Malaria Report and this document outlines the incredible progress that has been made in just a decade toward overcoming one of the world’s oldest, deadliest and costliest diseases.

While gains have been made there is still a pressing need for new interventions, innovations and capital and government engagement to achieve the goal of near zero deaths due to malaria. It is for that reason that MNM Canada has chosen to stop operating as an independent Canadian charitable organization and will instead focus efforts to support Malaria No More.
- Golf Rocks in 2008 brought together celebrities and supporters for an amazing evening that generated over $750,000 with those funds going to Malaria No More (MNM) and MNM Canada for the purchase and distribution of anti-malarial bed nets.
- Our partnership with Spread the Net (now a program of Plan Canada) has to-date delivered some 2.5 million bed nets protecting upwards of 7.2 million children and families in sub-Saharan Africa.
- In 2008, we partnered with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation to launch Faith Acts Together. This campaign brought together young people of all faiths to raise funds and awareness for malaria nets and prevention.
- Together with organizations like Buy-A-Net Malaria Prevention Group and the Canadian Red Cross, MNM Canada was instrumental in establishing the All-Party Parliamentary Caucus on Ending Malaria lead by former MP Patrick Brown and Senator Mobina Jaffer. This unique Canadian platform played host to a number of important discussions and events including, notably, the 2012 World Malaria Day Event that brought Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid of Belgium, Special Representative to the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, to Ottawa to discuss Canada’s involvement in the fight against malaria.
- MNM Canada contributed $60,000 to the MNM school zone project in Tanzania that directly resulted in 7,700 nets and malaria education being delivered to school aged children.
On behalf of the entire MNM Canada board thank you for your support. Malaria deaths can be stopped so I encourage you to stay involved and keep fighting!
The Honourable Belinda Stronach P.C.
