World Malaria Day

One child dies of malaria every 30 seconds in sub-Saharan Africa

"I support World Malaria Day. We can rid the world of the scourge of malaria. We have the means. We often lack the political will. Let us reverse this trend and make our world malaria free”

~ Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

St. Peter's Children & Youth through the Church School mite boxes have raised over $130 for Nets for Life, a partnership founded by Episcopal Relief & Development.

You can help too! Visit Nets for Life or Episcopal Relief and Development to give.
