Mothers, Malaria and Malnutrition
For many mothers around the globe, the threat of this deadly disease harming their children is not something new — it’s something additional. On a normal day, contaminated drinking water could lead to diarrhea that results in severe dehydration in their child. On a normal night, a mosquito could bite their baby and inject life-threatening malaria. In a normal week, a mother might only be able to scrape together enough food to provide her children with one meager meal per day.
