World Malaria Day: How you can make a difference
Today is World Malaria Day!
Malaria takes the lives of over 600,000 children every single year, but it does not have to be that way!
Malaria is preventable, treatable, and curable
Every week we meet children and families who have been impacted by this life-threatening disease. And every week we also see how knowledge about the symptoms and access to critical medicine can save lives and change families!
We are coming up on the rainy season here in Uganda – it’s the time of year when malaria cases are at their peak. It’s also the time of year when it is most difficult for us to reliably reach the villages where we work because of the poor road conditions and rainy weather.
The van we have been using works wonderfully for getting our family and large groups around town, but it isn’t equipped for the rugged roads of the villages.
That’s why we are kicking off a new fundraising campaign today to help us buy and outfit a fully-equipped rugged SUV that will allow us to reach the villages year round!
Our goal is to raise $25,000 in the next seven days! This $25,000 will allow us to purchase a used vehicle, perform the necessary maintenance, and fully outfit the vehicle with the malaria education supplies that we need.
Will you prayerfully consider how your family and church community can contribute to our Mobile Malaria Vehicle Fundraising Campaign?
1. Every donation received April 25th-May 2nd will be an entry into a giveaway of not one, but TWO tshirts!! One of our new Malaria Bites shirts, and one of our Logo shirt!!
