The Malaria Foundation International aims to raise funds from public donations to develop and expand a series of innovative malaria projects. Funds will be used entirely to fight malaria, to make these projects thrive, and to engage an increasing number of people in the global fight against malaria. Projects can be oriented towards increased awareness and fundraising, scientific research and development, or controlling the disease through community based projects. Funds raised through the support of these projects will be used to reduce malaria immediately in affected villages and communities. The MFI encourages individuals, companies, foundations, and governments to support its current projects and to start new unique malaria projects. MFI supported projects have the direct aim to reduce the morbidity and mortality caused by malaria. We aim for the ultimate eradication of malaria with, in many cases, long-lasting personal relationships developing between donors and the recipient communities benefiting from the funds raised. Donors, please specify if you would like your contribution to go to a specific MFI project, or for support at the discretion of the MFI board.
The Malaria Foundation International's accomplishments, over the years since its inception in 1992, are almost entirely the product of volunteer efforts (read more at About MFI ). Funds are now being raised to support and expand MFI's potential, with project leaders hired as staff members to be dedicated to future endeavors. The MFI's boards have voluntarily played regular instrumental roles in the foundations directions, decision making, review of documents, global networking, and agenda setting. The Foundation set the vision for a malaria-free world. When the MFI started, there was very little information available about malaria, and no other organizations existing that were dedicated to this disease. As new organizations rise up, the MFI continues to re-invent itself, seeking gaps that need to be filled. The Foundation has progressed from promoting awareness - a task also now embraced by an increasing number of groups - to encouraging greater communication, collaboration and team work, and emphasizing the extreme importance of education and economic development as factors in the fight against malaria. The MFI supports all immediate measures that can impact the death and suffering caused by malaria (e.g. long-lasting insecticide treated nets, indoor residual spraying, and effective treatment), but as a leading authority, the organization wants to be sure we are not looking solely for a quick fix. Rather, we need to recognize that malaria is complex - and we need true leaders developed who understand this disease and will be there for the long haul, working steadfast towards the elimination of malaria in Africa and the many other parts of the world where malaria exists.
