Q: What is the #1 killer in Africa

1. A.I.D.S.?
2. Typhoid?
3. Malaria?
4. Yellow fever?

The answer is surprising to some. It has become a worldwide epidemic that impacts 350 to 500 million people each year. It kills about 1,000,000 people annually worldwide, 90 percent of those deaths are children in Africa. What is outrageous is that it is preventable! The answer is C. Malaria! Clink on the Bite Back Link on the side bar to learn more about Compassion International's response and their fight to save innocent lives from this deadly killer. We plan to help deliver treated mosquito netting to the orphans in Congo we will visit this summer. PLease let us know if you want to contribute to this project. We will hand deliver nets, in your name, for children in need!
