Football Combating Malaria with Lionel Messi

In 2013, Aspire Football Dreams & Vision 21 partnered with then World Player of the Year, Lionel Messi, on the ‘Football Combating Malaria’ project.

The objective of the project is to distribute 400,000 bed nets in 10 African countries, with that figure increasing to 1 million nets each year throughout the African continent.

In the first year, Vision 21 was in charge of sensitization & distribution of nets in the first African country, Senegal.


“My commitment to be part of this battle against malaria is relentless. Whenever I have the opportunity to help, I will not hesitate.” – LIONEL MESSI
