BUENA PARK, CA (December 14, 2006) - The White House will convene an important summit on malaria on Thursday, December 14. The deadly disease is killing over one million people every year. In the global fight to eradicate malaria, Islamic Relief has implemented projects in three African countries to reduce mortality and protect vulnerable populations.
Long eradicated in developed countries such as the United States, malaria still kills 1.2 million people each year.
Horn of Africa
Three years of failed rains led to severe drought across the Horn of Africa, creating food shortages for up to 15 million people. The pastoralists who live across northern Kenya, south-eastern Ethiopia and southern Somalia are the worst-affected people.
Islamic Relief (IR) is working to help the drought-stricken people of the Mandera region of Kenya, and in the Somali region of Ethiopia.
Despite the rains in May, clean drinking water remains scarce. The rains were patchy and not enough to last until the next ones are due.
Seasonal rains in Kenya should have brought relief to its drought-stricken regions. Instead the heavy rainfall has caused flash floods in many places.
