Malaria is a dangerous disease with pregnant women and children most vulnerable. Mortein Insecticide calls on all women across Africa to join Mortein and fight against malaria. World Malaria Day is April 25, 2012. Song composed by Cobhams Asuquo Lyrics by Cobhams Asuquo and Omawumi Director – Iykeman (Urban Touch)

World Malaria Day is commemorated every year on 25 April and recognizes global efforts to control malaria. Globally, 3.3 billion people in 106 countries are at risk of malaria. In 2009, 781 000 people died from malaria, mainly women and children in Africa.

According to the World malaria report 2011, there were about 216 million cases of malaria (with an uncertainty range of 149 million to 274 million) and an estimated 655 000 deaths in 2010 (with an uncertainty range of 537 000 to 907 000). Malaria mortality rates have fallen by more than 25% globally since 2000, and by 33% in the WHO African Region. Most deaths occur among children living in Africa where a child dies every minute from malaria.

So let’s support this by first keeping a clean environment, personal protection against mosquitoe bites, spraying of insecticide, using mosquitoe nets and get immune as a pregnant woman or support this children : “http://communityimpactng.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/net-a-child-project/”>
