Voices for Sierra Leone: Interfaith Concert for World Malaria Day
Monday, April 30, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
In Sierra Leone, 1/3 of child deaths under the age of five are due to malaria - a preventable, treatable disease. With only 126 medical practitioners to serve a population of nearly six million, Faiths Act in Sierra Leone works by bringing together Muslim imams and Christian pastors to train people (Malaria Faith Champions) in their local communities! Working with the Ministry of Health, Interreligious Council, and Christian Health Association of Sierra Leone, they plan to reach over 100,000 homes by June 2012 - that translates to thousands of lives saved from malaria through multi-faith action!
We've got an amazing line up of performers, dedicating their voices and time to shine a light on the issue of malaria and demonstrating how faith can be a force for good in the world!

Additionally we will be exhibiting photos taken in countries that have continued to fight malaria. If you would like to submit photographs you've taken, please send a digital copy to Andrea Choi at email@example.com no later than April 20, 2012.
All entries must have a resolution of 1 million pixels or greater (1 megapixels) to ensure proper display. Participants of the exhibition will receive a certificate; three will be given a small prize!
All proceeds will go directly to malaria prevention programs in Sierra Leone.
