Reality bites

cherylCheryl Cole getting malaria has been making the headlines for the past week.  But did you know that in Africa a child dies of malaria every 45 seconds? That's 2000 children each day.

It's a shocking statistic and got me thinking about what we can do.  Malaria No More is a UK charity, part of a global effort to put an end to the suffering and death caused by malaria. There a few things you can do, from donating £5 for a mosquito net, to fundraising or simply spreading the word.

In the time its taken you to read this a child will have probably died.  A sobering thought.  So do your bit today. And get well soon Cheryl.
