On World Malaria Day, the statistics are grim:
Malaria Deaths
660 000 estimated malaria deaths globally
91% of deaths are in Africa
86% of deaths are in children under 5 years of age
80% of estimated malaria deaths occur in just 14 countries
Malaria Cases
219 million malaria cases worldwide
80% of estimated cases occur in 17 countries
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, India and Nigeria account for 40% of estimated malaria cases
Population at Risk
3.3 billion (half of the world’s population)
A bed net costs only $11 in ChildFund’s Gifts of Love & Hope catalog. But the life it will save is invaluable.
