Aid Group Helps Prevent the Spread of Malaria

Ad Feedback

Malaria is one of the top 10 killers of people worldwide.

Each year between 350 million and 500 million people are infected with the mosquito-born disease.

Over 1 million people die of malaria every year, most in sub-Saharan Africa.

In fact, malaria kills more children on the continent than HIV and AIDS.

CBN's Operation Blessing recently sent a team into the countryside of the West African country of Senegal to help.

Working with local churches, the aid group distributed thousands of treated mosquito nets.

Something as simple as a bed net can help prevent malaria and save a life.

More than 5,000 villagers will benefit from the latest distribution.

You can find out more by going to Operation Blessing's Web site at www.ob.org.
