Malaria: Battling the Plague of the Poor

BY 30 HOUR FAMINE TEAM

One of the top killers worldwide, malaria is a constant threat to children-especially children who are made vulnerable by poverty & hunger. Malnourishment makes it harder for children’s bodies to fight off the symptoms of malaria, making it a deadly outcome for many. Today is World Malaria Day-and a time for reflection on how the 30 Hour Famine is giving children a fighting chance against diseases like malaria. Tom Costanza, a World Vision Videographer, has traveled the world documenting and sharing stories. Today he shares his own story about a trip to Mozambique and contracting malaria while he was there.
