“Hi, I am Mozzy Man.
I’m a giant mosquito but I’m not like other mosquitoes. The difference? I don’t bite people!
I spend my days turning up in unexpected places, meeting people and encouraging them to get involved in the fight against malaria. My heroes are David Beckham and Andy Murray because they both support Malaria No More UK too. It’s not always easy. You see people often don’t like me because of malaria which some mosquitoes transmit when they bite people. In Africa, malaria makes many people very sick, especially pregnant women and young children. I tried to tell other mosquitoes what the malaria they were passing on was doing to people but they just didn’t want to listen.
A child dies every minute from malaria but it’s so simple to prevent – a mosquito net can help to protect two people from catching malaria. £5 is enough to buy, deliver and hang a net so click here if you want to make a donation – together we can make a real difference!
By the way, I’d love you to get involved so feel free to send me an email or if you ever see me out and about please do ask to take a photo with me – send the photo to email@example.com and we will put it up here.
I’m up to new stuff all the time so watch this space…
