World Malaria Day

Yesterday (April 25th) was World Malaria Day. A day to raise awareness about this deadly but preventable issue. Did you know:

Every 45 seconds a child dies of malaria
85% of malaria deaths are children under the age of 5
This is a preventable disease, it is as simple as providing a mosquito net


So why are we not doing anything more when we are so capable? Compassion has its own site http://www.biteback.net/ where you can get facts, order resources and make a donation. Do you realize that for $10 you can provide an insecticide treated net that can save a life?

Check it out...make a difference and lets try to end this by 2015.
