General Conference Update: World Malaria Day

Today is World Malaria Day, and the United Methodist General Conference is celebrating the “Imagine No Malaria/Nothing But Nets” campaign we’ve been engaged in along with the Gates Foundation and the NBA. In 2010 malaria claimed one life every 30 seconds. In 2011, one life was lost to malaria every 45 seconds. Today, malaria takes one life every 60 seconds

We are making progress, but still have work to do! For more information or to help make malaria a memory, check out the conference website, www.umoi.org.

You can also join Bill Haden, Bishop Hoshibata and me right here in Tampa by going to www.gc2012.umc.org and clicking on “live stream”.
