Nearly 200,000 insecticide-treated mosquito nets have been distributed free of charge in some of the most malaria prone areas of the world. That translates into almost 400,000 lives saved—and all in the name of Christ! That is the final evaluation of the 14-year ministry of His Nets.
During its recent annual meeting, the His Nets board of directors voted to end its successful ministry effective June 30, 2018. That decision did not come easily, especially for T Thomas and his daughter Andi who are its co-founders. “It is a time to celebrate our accomplishments rather than mourn its end,” said Andi.
The board wishes to also express its deepest gratitude to all of those who have partnered with them throughout the years. This includes other non-profits, dozens of churches and hundreds of individuals. “The simplicity of this ministry has been easy to communicate,” said the director, T Thomas. “Our motto of fighting malaria one netat a time has connected with children’s groups, Sunday school classes, civic clubs and individuals of all ages. The response through the years has been amazing!” We are so thankful for all of those who have supported this work.
When His Nets began in 2004, it was the only organization of its kind distributing the best insecticide treated nets free of charge in multiple countries. Fortunately, today there are more than a dozen organizations doing the same thing. The result is that malaria worldwide has begun to decline. This and other factors led the board to end the ministry of His Nets this summer.
Note: Several projects are to be completed before June 30, 2018 and gifts will be received until that date.
