Malaria is responsible for 50% of all infant deaths and 20% of all maternal deaths in Zambia. Despite progress in the global fight against this disease, the need remains urgent for the children, women, and men who still risk severe illness or death on a daily basis.
Three global humanitarian leaders have partnered with the Zambian government in an ambitious $6 million large-scale plan to reach 1.3 million Zambians and reduce Malaria by 90% in targeted communities by training and equipping 2,500 new community health workers.
Community health workers serve their neighbors by providing vital health information and education to pregnant women and families with young children. Across Zambia, there is a shortage of these health workers, who typically are volunteers, working only for stipends. This project will help fill this gap.
With your partnership, we can create a Malaria-Free Zambia.
“This program builds on what decades of experience has taught us: the power of community health workers to reach the most vulnerable in areas with little to no access to the healthcare system. We can’t overstate the value of investing in the recruitment and training of trusted community members to bring effective treatment of malaria to those who need it most.” – April McCoy, Program Quality and Impact Health Sector Director, World Vision U.S.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
