This is it--the year that Congress is ready to act to fight the spread of malaria. But they need your help. They need to know that YOU want them to support funds to fight malaria!
In 2010, malaria will kill as many as one million people worldwide. By the end of today alone, about 2,000 children will have died as a result of the disease. In fact, by the time you finish reading this message, several people will have died from this devastating disease.
In many of the communities where LWR works, mosquitoes--the carriers of malaria--have more power over a child's future than their own mothers. And for adults infected with the disease, and unable to work or care for their families, mosquitoes literally have more control over their lives than any mayor, military, or economic system.
In recent years, the U.S. government has made large and meaningful investments in the fight against malaria, helping save millions of lives. We are closer than ever to winning the fight against malaria. We cannot afford to back away from this fight.
Please sign this letter and ask your member of Congress to support the fight against malaria with proper funding in the 2011 budgeting and appropriations process.
