Did you know that every 60 seconds malaria claims the life of someone in Africa? This can be prevented by supporting the Imagine No Malaria initiative. This initiative’s plan is to help in four ways: Prevention by providing bed nets to families in the villages; Treatment by providing diagnostic access and medicine; Education by reaching out to the communities to teach people how to avoid malaria; and Communication by improving the methods of communication to tell the people about this life saving information. It includes improving radio stations, and providing hand-crank and solar powered radios to villages.
You can help by attending the Ice Cream Social hosted by Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church on Sunday, August 19th from 2-4 PM. This event is free and open to the public. We simply ask for a ‘good will donation’ which will be given to the conference to support the Imagine No Malaria program. Why not plan to come enjoy a nice cold treat, make a generous donation, and save a life.
