Story

In 2019 it is estimated that 409,000 people around the world died from malaria - a preventable disease - the majority being children under five and pregnant women (source: WHO). 2021 is a vital year in the global campaign to make our world one without malaria. This coming June, the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the vitally important Kigali Summit on malaria and neglected tropical diseases will take place in Rwanda. The summit marks a historic moment that will unite global leaders and put a spotlight on the importance of renewed action in fighting malaria. We need more action, more innovation, more funding and more political leadership to defeat malaria and move forward stronger in this new global health landscape. Across Rentokil Initial, colleagues are taking part in a 9,000km Race to Kigali (the distance between our HQ and Kigali, Rwanda), including teams from America, Australia, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Caribbean, Africa, HR, IT, Finance, M&A and Legal. By combining the efforts of colleagues walking, running or cycling, each team will ‘reach’ the distance to Kigali. This is our global effort to raise funds and show our support for this vital cause. It all starts on Monday 15 February through to the UN’s World Malaria Day on 25 April. Andy Ransom: "As a proud patron of Malaria No More UK, I am asking my colleagues at Rentokil Initial, as well as friends, family and associates to get involved in the Race to Kigali. In doing so, helping raise incredibly important funding for Malaria No More UK at such a critical time. Rentokil Initial Cares, our charitable fund, will match every £1 raised up to £100,000.” Together we can achieve a Zero Malaria world within a generation. Please show your support.
