David Beckham & Andy Murray at the launch of Malaria No More UK
David Beckham and Andy Murray are founding members of the Malaria No More UK Leadership Council and committed supporters of our mission to reach near zero deaths from malaria by 2015.
In the countdown to World Malaria Day, their messages of support urge for continued action to help end deaths in Africa. David Beckham, also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador says: “It’s encouraging to know that our UK support is having a direct, positive effect and saving lives from malaria. Last year, the charity helped protect two million people from malaria in Africa, which is a great achievement. Malaria is still a very serious issue though and remains the biggest single killer of young children in Africa. Please join me this World Malaria Day and donate to support Malaria No More UK.”
World Malaria Day is a moment to acknowledge the global progress to make malaria no more and Andy Murray says: “It’s impressive to see the results so far in the fight against malaria, with a drop of over 20% in global malaria deaths in the last decade, however, we need to keep up this important work. I hope this World Malaria Day, people across the country will get behind Malaria No More UK and its inspiring goal to reach near zero deaths from malaria by 2015.”
