​”I would like to thank the people from the ELCA, for the help which they are rendering to us. This shows us that there are people who care.  One thing I am sure of is that [the members of the ELCA] believe that people should be the hands and the feet of God.”

This message of thanks comes from Clement Rafael Banda, formerly the Malaria Livelihood Officer for the Lutheran malaria program in Zambia. He continues, “Through the Lutheran malaria program in Zambia, people are being impacted; people’s lives are really changing for the better. So the help is falling on fertile ground. This program is giving people an opportunity to better themselves.  And it also means that families will be happy, and this program is helping people to lead a fulfilled life.”

The seeds of generosity that you have sown through your support of the ELCA Malaria Campaign have taken root in the lives of many people in Zambia and in 12 other countries in Africa. Your gifts are allowing others to meet their goals of health and wholeness, and to lead a fulfilled life.  And so we give thanks to God for you!
