More than 16 million people are at risk of malaria in Zambia. It is estimated that in 2015, there were over 5 million malaria cases.
Though major achievements have been made in malaria control, the disease remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in Zambia, with one in five children under age five infected with malaria parasites, and other vulnerable population groups at risk.
Our communities see a significant malaria season each year from November through mid-January. Each year, dozens of students return to our schools with Malaria and need life saving treatments. It costs only about $5 to cure Malaria. You can give to support this life-saving medical intervention.
