Mandy Moore paid a visit to the Central African Republic to get a feel for what it’s like to fight malaria, a disease being spread in large part by mosquitoes. She partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help hand out insecticide-treated mosquito nets.

"It was an honor to join this trip to help prevent malaria, which continues to kill nearly one million people every year,” said Moore. "This week I've met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep."

Moore also appealed to fans to help out.

"Over the next week the partnership will deliver over 400,000 nets, nearly half the amount it will take to fill the gap. It takes just $10 to help - I hope more people will join us to make sure these families can sleep safely under an anti-malaria net. Together, we can cover the country."

Hopefully we can all band together and help stop this terrible disease!
