Congo Bed Nets for Life
Malaria is the largest cause of death for children under five years old in Congo. Malaria spreads when a person gets bitten by an infected mosquito. Bed nets help prevent mosquito bites at night and reduce the incidence of malaria in children. Unfortunately most children do not have a bed net. There is a substantial need with life and death consequences.
Malaria is preventable and curable, but can be fatal if not treated promptly with effective medicines. We can help prevent children from becoming infected with this disease in the first place. The Covenant Church of Congo (CEUM) is active in helping stop the spread of malaria in children and invited us to join in the fight. The offerings by the children of the Covenant Church of North America will go toward providing children in Congo with a protective bed net to keep them safe from infected mosquitoes.
