The Virginia Baptist Mission Board has entered into a project with the Ghana Baptist Convention focusing on the suppression of Malaria in an area in the northern region of Ghana known as Yendi. Malaria is the #1 killer in all of Africa. Statistically about 60% of people in the Yendi district contract malaria each year. Once the disease is contracted, an individual must receive vaccination or they will eventually die. Women, children, the elderly, and expectant mothers are at greatest risk. Vaccines cost as little as $2.00, but this amount is often cost prohibitive for many Ghanaians.

“More Than Nets” is a Virginia Baptist initiative focused on raising $1 million over the next 2 years. This goal will allow us to purchase 100,000 chemically treat nets which will be sufficient to provide protection to the estimated 180,000 district residents. These funds will provide proper instruction of net usage, health education seminars, and transportation expenses to get nets to Yendi as well as each individual village. There are approximately 454 villages in the Yendi district, and our vision is to reach them all. 309 of these villages currently have no church, so a portion of the funds will be used to start new churches in these areas
