Here’s another way we are changing lives: Wildberries gave a donation of $200 in December 2013 on our behalf to Imagine No Malaria. This is a United Methodist program that cooperates with many of our African United Methodist churches to end malaria in Africa. 100% of our donation went right to the project.
In Africa, our United Methodist church has already given out 1.2 million bed nets. These nets prevent the mosquitoes from biting people when they come out at night. We have also trained 5,400 community health workers who deliver the nets and monitor how they are used.
Because of this, the death rate from malaria has been cut in half. We still have a long way to go, but we are making progress. The thank you letter from our Board of Global Ministries closes with:
“May God grant you a sense of hope and joy as you continue your support for mission and as we advance towards a day with no malaria”
Grace and Peace,
