Gospel for Asia Provides Defense Against Malaria
WILLS POINT, TX — Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan — Discussing 71-year-old widow Bhranti, her struggle against the danger of malaria, and Christmas gift distribution of Gospel for Asia provides defense against malaria through mosquito nets.
A n old, tattered net is all that separated 71-year-old Bhranti from the mosquitoes buzzing outside her home. Any one of those pesky insects potentially carried a historically feared disease: malaria.
Danger All Around
Malaria killed more than 400,000 people worldwide in 2018. The World Health Organization considers mosquito nets among the most important measures taken to combat malaria. Insecticide-treated mosquito nets have helped lower the number of deaths in recent years, and they are the only protection millions of people in Asia have against the harmful disease.
But Bhranti did not have a good net.
Bhranti’s husband passed away more than 10 years ago. All four of her daughters married, leaving the widow by herself. Every night, the ragged net Bhranti used as protection against mosquitoes went over her bed. The older widow desperately needed a new net, but she simply did not possess the money to purchase one.
