For half the world, a simple mosquito bite can have deadly consequences: Every year, malaria kills approximately 655,000 people, mostly pregnant women and children under the age of five.

We can stop this. Since 2000, malaria deaths have been reduced by up to 33% in sub-Saharan Africa, but there is so much more we can do. This World Malaria Day, join ONE members from many different faith backgrounds to advocate for full funding of effective malaria-fighting programs like the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and malaria.

ONE is partnering with important faith-based malaria initiatives to Shine A Light on Malaria, including: Faiths Act, Islamic Relief, Lutheran Malaria Initiative, Union for Reform Judaism, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and Episcopal Relief & Development. Together, we can show that people of all faiths care about our neighbors suffering from malaria, and provide the lifesaving resources required to eliminate malaria deaths. Join us to mobilize your faith community to “Shine A Light on Malaria” and take action to save lives. Sign-up now to download your action guide and get started today!
