Health outreach covers many

United Methodists have donated $60 million to fighting malaria. As part of that effort, the Imagine No Malaria initiative distributed nearly 400,000 long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets in the Bo District of Sierra Leone during a June 5-14, 2014 campaign.

Trained volunteers took nets door to door, as well as educated people about how to use and maintain them properly. This was part of an integrated health campaign that also provided Vitamin A supplements and de-worming medication to children. Health partners will distribute a total of 3.5 million nets across the nation of Sierra Leone. 

This page provides the full coverage of the June effort, as the church cast a wide net to improve health in Sierra Leone.
