ELCA Malaria Campaign
Malaria, a preventable and treatable disease, is a leading cause of death in Africa, claiming the life of a child every 60 seconds. Through the ELCA Malaria Campaign, rolled out by the 2011 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, ELCA members are working with Lutheran churches in Africa to prevent, treat and contain the disease by 2015. A goal to raise $15 million and support the anti-malaria efforts of Lutheran churches and organizations in 11 African countries. The ELCA Malaria Campaign is uniquely positioned to provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, health care, education and more to eliminate deaths from this disease -- for good. It costs $10 to send a mosquito net through the ELCA Malaria Campaign.
