Sending love to little Miss Ingrid, daughter of our OrphFund Uganda Co-ordinator Henry, who is on the mend after a nasty case of malaria. Get well soon little one!
Malaria is fairly common in East Africa but for small children (and the elderly) it can be perilous. Medical treatment & medicine for Malaria is relatively inexpensive at around $5-10 however for many this is an impossible cost and so malaria sadly still takes many lives. It's always a sobering reminder to us how of fortunate we are in the OrphFund family so that we have the resources to afford such things as effective medical care and good food for all.
