Thank you to Solomon Shewit!

TAMTAM would like to recognize 13-year old Solomon Shewit from Falls Church, VA. We are inspired by Solomon's desire to fight malaria and his creativity in organizing events. Solomon wrote to us in an email:

"I found it very heartbreaking that in Africa, and even in my country, Ethiopia, so many people are dying from malaria because they cannot get a hold of a mosquito net, but here in the United States, getting hold of these mosquito nets is not an issue for most people. I realized that with malaria, there is so much that I can do to help, and after searching for an organization to send money for mosquito nets, I thought that TAMTAM, Together Against Malaria, was perfect." -Solomon Shewit

Solomon shared with us plans to hold various events such as bake sales, concerts, and Ethiopian food services. We have just received Solomon's contribution to TAMTAM which will provide hundreds of mosquito nets in sub-Saharan Africa.

Thank you, Solomon, from the whole TAMTAM team! We will put your kind donation to good use!
