Posted in Mother Africa, Our Health, Spotlight with tags , , , on August 6, 2010 by Mijiza Zeyzey

End Malaria is part of World Vision’s global effort to end preventable child deaths. Over 24,000 children under age 5 will die in a day from preventable diseases. A global movement of governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), and average citizens are responding to make a difference.

There is a solution! Malaria prevention and treatment options include:

  • Distributing insecticide-treated bed nets
  • Educating communities
  • Managing the environment
  • Treating pregnant mothers
  • Providing anti-malaria drugs
  • Providing case management and referrals to patients

World Vision is asking for your help. Join the campaign to hold governments and world leaders to their promises to distribute these low- cost solutions.

World Malaria Day – Help End Malaria

Posted in Awareness, Europe, Humanity, Latin America, Mother Africa, North America, Oceania, Our Health, South America with tags , , , on April 19, 2010 by Mijiza Zeyzey

April 25, 2010 is World Malaria Day. Help World Vision raise awareness about this deadly, but preventable disease and for just $18, you can provide life-saving bed nets for an entire family.

World Vision’s End Malaria campaign aims to significantly reduce the illness and death caused by malaria by distributing long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets in vulnerable communities, along with prevention education, and advocating for an increase in U.S. government funding. This will allow a scale-up of existing anti-malaria programs and enhance the efforts of the global movement to combat malaria. World Vision works in 64 malaria-endemic countries, 24 of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Read more . . .
