World Malaria Day
Every year, millions of people around the globe observe World Malaria Day on April 25. The ELCA Malaria Campaign is turning this day into a special week, observing World Malaria Sunday on April 27.

The ELCA's goal is to raise $250,000 -- enough to start malaria programming in Namibia. And when you give a gift between April 25 and May 2, your gift will be matched. Save the date, join the movement and observe World Malaria Day on April 27.
