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 . . .

Sponsor a Child

Posted in Awareness, CULTURE, Humanity, Mother Africa with tags , , , , on March 9, 2010 by Mijiza Zeyzey

World Vision is looking for sponsors of children like 13 year old Kanini. Kanini is the soul supporter of himself and his ailing grandmother who is well into her eighties. Kanini’s parents are dead and he worries about the well being of his grandmother. Each day Kanin herds cattle in exchange for small amounts of porridge. He shares his ration with his grandmother. She worries about him.

“Even if I go for many days without food,” Kanini’s grandmother says, “it is alright, as long as my grandchild tells me that he ate something.”

Rose, their neighbor, offers to share what she has with them but often there is little for her to share. Rose is a widow with 10 children to feed. People used to freely share their food, but the raising food cost makes it hard to neighbors to continue to do that.

Rose says,

“The hunger situation here is dividing us . . . Very few people will harvest enough this year.”

Kanini dreams of attending school to be able to take care of his grandmother. He says,

“I do not go to school,  because there is no one to sponsor me.”

For about $1 a day, you can help a child like Kanini to have the most basic necessities-like food, education, clean water, and health care.
