About us: Origin of Against Malaria: Rob Mather lives in London. In June 2003 he saw a television programme about a two-year-old girl called Terri who suffered 90% burns in a housefire.

He was very moved by her story and rounded up two friends to swim and raise some money for her trust fund.

What started as a three-person swim developed over the next seven weeks into 150 swims in 73 countries involving 10,000 people. 100% of the money raised went to Terri’s Trust Fund. Swim For Terri took place on 6th Dec 2003.

A few people asked ‘What are we doing next year?’ Rob’s throwaway line was ‘Get a million people to swim…’ and World Swim Against Malaria was the result.

We promise:

  • 100% of the money we receive will buy long-lasting insecticidal nets
  • and they will end up over heads and beds
  • and we will demonstrate that has happened.

From a legal perspective, Against Malaria is an initiative of the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF), a charity registered in the UK, US, Australia and a number of other countries.

The Against Malaria Foundation:

AMF launched and ran World Swim Against Malaria (WSM) on 3rd Dec 2005 in which more than 250,000 people swam and fundraised. 100% of the US$1.3m raised purchased 270,000 long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) which are now being distributed to protect 540,000 (mainly) children from biting insects when they sleep at night.

The AMF is a charity registered in the UK and governed by the laws of England & Wales. Our registered charity number is 1105319. We are also registered in other countries.

The Foundation was set up in August 2004 with the explicit aim of handling the money raised through World Swim Against Malaria. Since then Against Malaria has launched a number of other initiatives and has developed a significant number of fundraising partnerships whereby groups raising funds for nets, often for their own distributions, raise funds through Against Malaria. We do not take a cut or a fee so 100% of the funds these groups raise buys nets for them.

As stated in the Articles of Association of the Foundation, the official document describing our purpose, our aims are:

“…the relief of suffering from malaria by the provision of funds for the prevention and/or treatment of malaria and the advancement of education in the subjects of a) the problems and suffering caused by malaria and b) what can be done to alleviate them.”
