The mosquito nets are part of a major campaign against malaria. The aim of the action is to raise money so that can be distributed 50,000 mosquito nets in Africa to people who need it.

The campaign ends on World Malaria Day, April 25. In conclusion, on that day the world’s largest mosquito net will be hung over the Euromast. With this action, the organization also hopes for a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
