TAMTAM has distributed tens of thousands of bed nets across Africa and built partnerships to distribute those nets more efficiently.


I didn’t think malaria was a problem. But now I have children and I have seen them suffer so much, which proves to me that malaria is a deadly disease. I think everyone wants a net but some cannot afford. When you get used to sleeping under a net, you feel bad sleeping without.
