Horseware Ireland and JustWorld International partnered together to distribute 10,000 treated mosquito nets on a recent visit to JustWorld-supported project sites in Cambodia.  JustWorld International is a not-for-profit, humanitarian organization founded to work as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world by helping underprivileged children. Since 2006, Horseware Ireland, a leading manufacturer of horse blankets, has donated a portion of the proceeds from each sale of its Rambo Protector Flysheet, its Amigo Bug Buster Flysheet and its Amigo Flysheet toward the mosquito net project. 

“Horseware created this project because we felt that people who bought fly nets for their horses would be happy to know that a portion of the proceeds were going to help people who needed protection from mosquitoes,” explains founder Tom MacGuiness.  “This year, we were able to purchase 10,000 fully treated mosquito nets and hope to double that number in 2008.  We are especially pleased to be involved with JustWorld International as we feel that they select well-respected local partners that ensure that the money is reaching those in need.”

In many cases, mosquito nets are the only protection that impoverished Cambodian people have against the life-threatening diseases carried by mosquitoes including malaria, dengue fever and Japanese encephalitis.

“The mosquito net campaign is another example of what we can accomplish by working together to make positive changes in the world,” says Jessica Newman, Executive Director of JustWorld International.  “Horseware has shown extraordinary generosity towards the people of Cambodia and has approached this fundraising effort with both care and creativity.  Customers should feel good knowing that every fly net purchase from Horseware goes towards helping people who need protection against debilitating and, in many cases, fatal diseases.”
