Our youth ambassadors
On International Youth Day 2018, we officially introduced our malaria youth ambassadors. A group of determined, inspirational, young people from around the world who have seen or experienced malaria first hand and refuse to stand by and watch as malaria continues to kill a child every two minutes and sees more than 216 million cases each year.
Read their stories, be inspired and see why they've decided to dedicate their lives to the fight and to represent Malaria No More UK.
