A mother and child in Caia, Mozambique, take home a mosquito net after a malaria workshop sponsored by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Mozambique and the ELCA Malaria Campaign. The campaign seeks to contain the preventable disease, which takes the lives of more than 650,000 people each year. Jessica Nipp Hacker, campaign coordinator, said the effort has surpassed the $5 million mark on its way to $15 million by 2015.
