Word-of-mouth is a powerful tool for change. In the case of Imagine No Malaria, it is a critical way we are spreading the word about the need to help families in Africa overcome malaria.
Every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria. It is a disease that is preventable and treatable. We eliminated it in America in the 1950s, but today 90% of deaths from malaria occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
Our conference raised $135,276 with the Nothing But Nets Annual Conference offering in 2007, resulting in 13,527 bed nets now providing protective coverage for families in Africa! Imagine No Malaria is the next step in the goal of ending suffering and death from this preventable disease. It continues to include bed nets, but expands into other areas of prevention, treatment, education, and communicating life-saving information.
Our conference’s minimum goal with the 2010 Annual Conference offering is the equivalent of $1 for every member of this conference — about $164,000. Individual contributions can be made through your local church. Totals will be reported during the 2010 Annual Conference June 6-9 in Fort Worth. The INM offering will continue through the end of this year and on until our goal of $1 per member has been reached.
We anticipate a celebration of accomplishment in June 2011!
