Lutheran Malaria Initiative

Download May-June LMI Update

Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies from malaria. Through the Lutheran Malaria Initiative (LMI), LCMS Lutherans can help fight this disease.

Nearly 700,000 people die each year from the malaria, and most of them are children and pregnant woman. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Malaria is a preventable and treatable disease. As Lutherans, we have a historic and confessional opportunity to make a difference, to turn the tide on malaria deaths.

This is our call. The preventable deaths of thousands of people in Africa cry out for a compassionate response. Through LMI, we can work together to restore health and inspire hope to people and families in Africa who are suffering from or vulnerable to the ravages of malaria.

“Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
—Matthew 25:40
