WORKING TO END THE STING OF MALARIA IN AFRICA.
Ending Preventable
Malaria Deaths in
This Decade
Though 100 percent preventable, malaria still ravages 40 percent of our planet. Our Imagine No Malaria campaign is working with global partners that include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, United Nations Foundation and others. Together we’re stopping the devastating impact of malaria in Africa by providing mosquito nets, as well as trained health workers and clinics, to prevent and treat malaria in areas where people are most vulnerable.
Because That's Church.
 
 

Imagine No Malaria: An Overview


We’re empowering partners in Africa to achieve a sustainable victory over malaria. Committed to ending deaths from malaria by 2015, we’re providing bed nets, working locally to drain standing water where insects breed, funding hospitals and training local workers.

 
 
 
OPEN HEARTS

Every person on the continent of Africa can share a story of someone they know who’s died of malaria. Because of our treatment and prevention efforts, more and more families are being spared that suffering and grief.
OPEN MINDS

Working in cooperation with the World Health Organization, The Global Fund and others, we’re equipping school children in Africa to raise awareness about this disease in their families and communities through educational skits.
OPEN DOORS

We’re equipping local churches. The extensive network of churches, hospitals and schools operated by The United Methodist Church in Africa have been able to keep their doors open to serve those who suffer because of the resources we share.
 
 
 

"The parasite has been killing children and sapping the strength of whole populations for tens of thousands of years...Now we can chart a course to end it."

EFFECTIVE PREVENTION
 
 
Although malaria was eliminated from the United States by 1951, the disease continues to wreak havoc on the continent of Africa, killing one person every 60 seconds. We’re working hard, though, to change the tide of this disease.
Because the female Anopheles mosquito preys at night, we've partnered with Nothing But Nets to provide protection to children, women and men as they sleep. To date we've given $7.5 million toward bed nets, and have committed $75 million more.
 
 
SOLUTIONS WITH INTEGRITY

Q: How do you know that donated resources are being used responsibly and effectively?

A: Good question. We've established health boards in Africa that are responsible for guaranteeing the effective use of funds and measuring results. These boards ensure that the plan we've assembled actually serves the needs of local communities. And, the formation of these boards also means these communities will be eligible for more assistance from our global partners.
 


 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 

Join us as we work to eliminate 100 percent of malaria deaths in this decade.



A lot of people think that church is what happens on hard wooden pews on Sunday mornings. We think that church happens as we move from those local gatherings into the world God loves. If you think that church is as much about what you can give as what you can get, join us.

THAT'S CHURCH.
