World Malaria Day – you can make a difference

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

(Micah 6:8)

Last September, Michael Bungay Stainer produced a book called End Malaria – it’s still available on Amazon.  There some good stuff in the book (really good).  The proceeds go towards ending malaria (bullet point summary of the project below).

A child dies every 45 seconds from malaria – DO I NEED TO WRITE ANY MORE?  Go ahead – act justly and love mercy!
