Malaria is a leading cause of death in Africa. It claims the life of a child every 45 seconds.
Peace Lutheran will be joining with our fellow churches in the ELCA to help eliminate deaths from this disease—for good.  This push is being lead by the Women of this church, through our WELCA, although the hope is that many other areas of the congregation will join with them in this worth while ministry.

Why malaria?
Just one bite from an infected mosquito is all it takes for a person to come down with malaria. Almost 800,000 people die of malaria each year. But it shouldn’t be this way. We know what it takes to stop malaria. The disease is completely preventable and treatable.

Why now?
Ending deaths from malaria is now a goal within our reach, thanks to a global movement of governments and international organizations. The ELCA and Lutheran churches in Africa are now part of this historic effort.

Why us?
Working as a church, through churches in Africa, we already have the structure in place to reach individuals and communities that other organizations cannot reach. We already have health care providers trained to make a difference.

What’s next?
We need your help. Your prayers, your leadership and your generous donations.  Our National goal is to raise 15 million by 2015.  After a little math, that means that if we as Peace Lutheran can reach a total congregational goal of $1442, we can do our part to totally eliminate death from malaria in Africa.  Can we do it?

Our gifts to the Peace Lutheran and ELCA Malaria Campaign will help our companion churches in Africa provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, mosquito control and comprehensive health education to help fight malaria.
