Our children have been handing out bracelets and collecting money for the last few months for “No More Malaria.” Bishop Goodpaster announced before the offering that last year this time, a child died from malaria related causes every 30 seconds. This year, because of world wide efforts, it has been cut in half. A child dies from malaria every 60 seconds. While that is an improvement, we look at our children and realize we can do better.
We are so proud of our children and their dedication to helping other children! Our offering at annual conference on Thursday morning raised over $16,000 for efforts to erase this silent killer. Please consider going to the www.wnccumc.org website and donating to “No More Malaria” online.
