Malaria, a disease transmitted by mosquito bites, is the leading killer of children in Africa. The bed nets work by "creating a protective barrier against deadly-malaria carrying mosquitoes that bite at night," according to the Nothing But Nets website.
Curry donated three nets for every three-pointer he made during the 2012-13 season and ended up donating 816 nets at the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp.
The program was founded in 2006 and has engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals to "help achieve the UN goal of ending malaria deaths in this generation." You can learn more about the organization and donate at the website here.
Hat tip to Good Morning America for the find.
