Ouch did something bite you?

Don't know, originally uploaded by visithra.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Ashton Kutcher and CNN’s bid to educate the public on prevention of illness and death caused by mosquitoes’ by creating a race to 1 million followers.

Well you can do the same here in Malaysia, MozzieSafe is an international mosquito netting and educational programme whose main aim is to help prevent illness and death caused by mosquitoes - the most deadly disease vectors known to man. Mosquitoes have killed millions of people over thousands of years and continue to kill millions per year by the spread of diseases.

Yes you’ve heard a million times and its still a problem more dire in certain countries. Every year a number of Malaysians still succumb to Denggi fever. My schoolmate passed away of Denggi when I was 17 so yes it can happen to anyone!

The Rotary Club of Gombak and its Foundation which operates in Kuala Lumpur will be organizing the MozzieSafe Special Charity First-Day Screening of “Angels & Demons on 14 May 2009, at GSC One Utama.

You can find out more about Mozziesafe here, at their Facebook page, make them one of your causes, and sign up for the event.
