Rotarians Eliminating Malaria In Tanzania

Rotarians Eliminating Malaria In Tanzania (REMIT) is officially supported by RIBI and is appealing for support to continue its life-saving projects.

Since 2003, the charity has improved the health and saved the lives of many Africans at risk of malaria. The disease is so deadly that one child under the age of five dies every 30 seconds and pregnant women die from a reduction in their immune systems.
