World Malaria Day


Today is World Malaria Day.  The UMC has made the global fight against malaria an important part of its global ministry.  It's tied to one of the church's "Four Areas of Focus": "Combating the diseases of poverty by improving health globally."  Through the church's Imagine No Malaria campaign, local churches, annual conferences, and denominational agencies have contributed toward the eradication of the disease, working in cooperation with the UN's Nothing But Nets campaign, a movement that has brought together a wide variety of partners to address this important issue.  As part of World Malaria Day, the church is working to "Cover Africa" with mosquito nets.  Check out the story and the YouTube video below for more information:
