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.
