Our Chosen Beneficiary Against Malaria Foundation

The Against Malaria Foundation (registered in the UK as charity number 1105319) is the charity we have chosen to support with your cartridge recycling efforts.

The AMF do pioneering work in the developing world to prevent the spread of malaria by distributing long-lasting anti-mosquito nets, which reduce child mortality and cases of malaria.

They've distributed over 130 million nets so far — saving over 75,000 lives and preventing many millions from contracting a debilitating disease.

  Why Anti-Malaria Nets?

A net is the most effective means of preventing malaria, and produced and distributed at the cost of approximately $2 USD per net.

So, just a single in-demand empty cartridge could purchase 1 anti-mosquito net, and a popular mobile phone or an unused cartridge in good condition could buy more than 10!

  Why This Charity?

100% of the value of donations that the AMF receives goes toward buying and distributing these nets, as operating costs are kept to a bare minimum and covered by corporate sponsors.

On top of that, the AMF are one of the world's most effective charities — making a greater measured impact on health and lives saved than almost all other charities on a per-dollar basis.

The Life You Can Save — who assess how you can most effectively save lives with your donations — have rated them in their 4 best charities for 9 years in a row. GiveWell have done the same.

  COVID-19 and Malaria

Because contracting malaria weakens the immune system, it means COVID-19 will become much more dangerous in these sub-tropical areas — getting both at the same time may make the difference between mild illness and life-critical states.

The impact on malaria-related deaths because of COVID-19 is likely to be very high: the WHO estimated that without normal anti-malaria interventions there could be an extra 769,000 deaths from malaria complications in 2020 alone.

The AMF's distribution methods have been adapted to continue to function despite global disruption, but this work to prevent malaria is now more critical than ever.
