Today, April 25th, is World Malaria Day.
Malaria kills approximately 655,000 children each year. It develops symptoms that usually include fever, chills, sweating, nausea, and headache. In severe cases, it can advance into coma or death.
 It is a preventable and treatable disease, but a child dies of malaria practically every 30 seconds.

Compassion International helps prevent malaria by : giving mosquito nets to families at risk of malaria, treating and educating families on malaria and how to prevent it.
You can support Compassion's Malaria Intervention by donating at this link.

A net gives protection from mosquitoes and the diseases they carry such as malaria, dengue fever, and yellow fever.
Please give so others can live.
