Today is World Malaria Day. Malaria. It sounds like such an antiquated disease, one that should have gone away with polio and ricketts. But it is very real for too many people today.
It kills up to 3 MILLION people each year.
It is one of the leading causes of death for children.
Malaria is entirely curable and preventable! Anti-malarial drugs are becoming accessible to even the poorest people on the planet. And just sleeping under a mosquito net can prevent the disease from striking.
Only poverty and ignorance and apathy and stopping us from eradicating this disease. So please join me and people all over the world in spreading awareness of this horrible disease.
