I just returned from a field trip to Sierra Leone where I had the opportunity to visit with a number of families in the Wellington suburb of Freetown. The community came out in full force to greet Phillip (my fellow traveler) and I.
A number of the children were holding up hand-written signs. The words on one of the signs - "Free from Malaria" - grabbed my attention (see included photo). This visual testimony was powerful. Her simply testimony struck a deep chord within me. It reminded me afresh that we making a life-preserving impact in many lives. Being free from malaria is significant. Saving someone's life from a killer disease is phenomenal and you are a part of making this happen.
Thanks to you and the nets you help provide, one more precious life was safe from the clutches of the killer disease, malaria. The community also had a big sign saying "Thank You Develop Africa Donors". We left with a sense of fulfillment... and a renewed desire to do much more.
Could you join us in doing more - saving more lives - by supporting this project on a monthly basis? When you sign up for recurring donations, we can together make many more lives "free from malaria. By signing up for recurring donations you would help us do so much more. Thanks for your on-going support!
