Making a difference to the world


Africafe Infusion is an initiative created by Swati, founder of My Malaria Mission. Swati, who grew up in Tanzania, is passionate about eradicating malaria in Africa; a mosquito-borne infectious disease.

Swati herself was diagnosed with cerebral malaria as a child, a fatal disease which involves high fever and severe headaches. However Swati was one of the lucky few, who received medical treatment in the early stages of contracting cerebral malaria and survived the horrific disease. That was back in 1981 and three decades later, the plight of malaria in Africa is still a burning issue.



According to the World Health Organisation, the African Region currently accounts for 85% of malaria cases and 90% of malaria deaths worldwide. It is a staggering statistic, particularly when you consider that many cases of malaria infection are preventable.

Many health organisations suggest that the use of mosquito nets treated with an insecticide can help protect families from mosquito bites in malarial areas. However many families are simply unable to afford this key prevention aid, which is why Swati created the Africafe Infusion initiative.

Through the sales of Africafe Infusion Australia Tea and Coffee products grown on the slopes of Mt.Kilimanjaro, Swati will help fund the purchase of mosquito nets which will help save the lives of many in Africa.

The high quality Africafe Infusion product range, which includes roasted and instant coffee blends and herbal and black tea varieties, is currently stocked in three convenient locations in Victoria;

  • Mish Mash Café - 228 Dorset Road 3155
  • Essential Health Foods - 10/246 Dorset Road 3155
  • Go Vita -1063, Knox Shopping Centre, 425 Burwood Highway 3152

  • The Common Good Ethical Grocer, 77 Church Street, Hawthorn. Victoria
  • Bayswater North Pharmacy, 17-39 Canterbury Road, Bayswater North. Victoria
.
These products can also be purchased through the My Malaria Mission website; simply use the sales or general enquiries form.

100% of the profits from your contribution will go towards helping to prevent malaria in Africa.
