A Child Dies from Malaria Every 60 Seconds.
Today we are in a special moment where we could turn this around. Working though Lutheran churches in Africa, the ELCA Malaria Campaign is uniquely positioned to provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, health care, education and more to help eliminate deaths from this disease—for good. To date, the Eastern Washington-Idaho Synod has given $20,984.25 to this cause. For more information, visit the ELCA Malaria Campaign.
