Fight Malaria With Compassion
Malaria — it's not something most of us think about. And we don't have to because we live in a country blessed with the latest medical advances.
But every minute of every day for children around the world, death from this disease is only a mosquito bite away. The tragic fact is malaria is a preventable and treatable disease.
Each year, more than 1 million people die from malaria. More than 750,000 of those deaths are children in Africa. That's one child every 30 seconds. And for every child who dies, hundreds more become sick and incapacitated. Though not talked about as much as HIV/AIDS, malaria is a silent, fast killer that puts many children and families Compassion serves in Africa, Latin America and Asia at serious risk. There are hundreds of thousands of children in countries where we work around the world who live in fear of the disease.
But it doesn't have to stay this way. You can help turn these numbers around and save lives! Learn how you can fight this deadly disease with Compassion!
