Malaria Deaths in
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
