Refugees, Malaria, and bednets

UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) has asked bloggers to give this campaign by Nothing But Nets some promotion.  Unfortunately, the majority of displaced people in the world live in malarial areas, and malaria is the greatest causes of death in refuge camps.

This fall, Nothing But Nets will work closely with UNHCR to send urgently-needed bed nets to more than 630,000 refugees in four countries where the threat is greatest.

How about some bed nets?
