Learn How Quality Pest Control Gives Back
Quality Pest Control, a locally owned and family-operated business, has been protecting public health for Omaha families and businesses for over 25 years. To expand our reach beyond the Omaha community, we have partnered with several charitable organizations, including Nothing But Nets.
Quality Pest Control Teams Up with Nothing But Nets to Advance the Fight Against Malaria in Haiti
Our team has recently partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help fight malaria in Haiti. Nothing But Nets is the world’s largest grassroots campaign to end malaria, a deadly yet preventable mosquito-borne disease that claims the life of a child under five every two minutes.
Through a comprehensive fundraising and awareness-raising campaign for the month of June, this partnership will enable Nothing But Nets to provide essential training and malaria detection and treatment tools for frontline health workers in Haiti. Beginning June 1, Quality Pest Control will donate $20 for each annual mosquito service purchased and $30 for each annual pest control service bundled with mosquito control. Quality Pest Control will also support the campaign via email and social media messages to customers and the broader Omaha community.
Why We Chose Haiti
Our partnership with Nothing But Nets reflects Quality Pest Control’s longstanding commitment to protecting public health, property, and the environment – and we look forward to doing our small part to help stamp out malaria in Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
“This is personal for me,” says Carl Braun, owner of Quality Pest Control, “I have 3 immigrant grandchildren from Haiti, and I want to help their home country.”
Where the Money Goes
With every $5 we raise, Nothing But Nets can purchase and distribute a long-lasting insecticide-treated bed net and help Haitians access anti-malarial treatments and rapid diagnostic tests. The money we donate will help community health workers go door-to-door in Haiti to identify the people’s needs, distribute mosquito nets, and treat uncomplicated malaria. Fighting malaria is simple and cost-effective, and our partnership with Nothing But Nets helps us prevent needless death and suffering. With help from Nothing But Nets and charitable donations like ours, Haiti hopes to end malaria by 2025.
According to Margaret Reilly McDonnell, the executive director of Nothing But Nets:
“Nothing But Nets is excited to partner with Quality Pest Control to advance the fight against malaria in Haiti. Through collective action, Haiti is on the path to malaria elimination, and new partners like Quality Pest Control will be critical to ensuring continued progress against one of the world’s oldest and deadliest diseases. Working together, we can achieve a malaria-free Haiti.”
