Florida Becomes the 32nd Annual Conference to Imagine No Malaria
Imagine No Malaria is the extraordinatry effort of the people of the United Methodist Church to eradicate malaria, a preventable treatable disease caused by the bite of an infected mosquito. 91% of malaria deaths are pregnant women and children under 5. The United Methodist Church has raised over $61 million of its $75 million goal to help end malaria.
The Florida Conference officially launched our campaign to help save 250,000 lives from malaria at the 2014 Annual Conference this June. Bishop Carter called for state-wide support of Imagine No Malaria, and asks for 100% commitment from churches.
We have the resources and the passion to help end malaria for the glory of Christ. Visit www.imagineflorida.org for information on how your church can get involved today!
