The Children for Children concert was a great success and all who attended enjoyed the music and the tombola as well as the ambiance - the children motivated to show their concern for children with malaria - expressing this through their music.


Many thanks to Ghity, and her sister Sissi for the inspiration, organization and energy which made this event a success and to all those organizations and individuals who so generously donated gifts for the tombola.

Medicines for Malaria Venture is a nonprofit organization created to discover, develop and deliver safe, effective and affordable antimalarial drugs through effective public-private partnership. Malaria is a preventable and curable disease; yet it kills 3,000 young children every day. Widespread drug resistance has rendered the cheapest and most common drugs useless in many areas. Continuous innovation is critical to stay a step ahead of resistance and create new and better prevention and treatment solutions for the nearly 2.4 billion people at risk of this deadly disease.

Today, MMV is managing the largest-ever portfolio of antimalarial drugs with some 20 projects from early discovery to late-stage clinical development. By 2010, MMV may have up to five new drugs registered to international standards. And our next challenge will be to ensure that these life-saving drugs reach those in most need.

Hope is within our reach.
