Lenten Offering: No More Malaria

Be a part of this year’s Lenten offering at Christ Church. Our special project this year is the United Methodist Church’s “Imagine No Malaria” campaign.

Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a child every 2 minutes.

But, there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership and together with our partners; our generation can beat malaria once and for all. By improving the ways people fight the disease using bed nets, providing access to diagnostic tests and medicine, draining standing water, and improving sanitation we have already helped reduce malaria deaths by more than half. Imagine No Malaria combines integrated health infrastructure, education and advocacy to address death and the debilitating effects of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.

If you would like to make a special gift toward this project, special Lenten offering envelopes are available in the pews. For more information see the No More Malaria website.
