Thank you from the Lutheran Malaria Initiative


Did you know?
  • To date, the Lutheran Malaria Initiative (LMI) has reached 2.7 million people through projects in Tanzania, Mali, Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya.
  • Within the areas where LMI works, use of insecticide treated bed nets increased from 55 percent to 87 percent over a three-year period.
  • In 2010 a child died from malaria every 45 seconds. Worldwide efforts, including those of LMI, have helped to reduce the child mortality rate from malaria to one death every 60 seconds. Although we rejoice in the fact that over the last two years the lives of nearly 400,000 children were spared, there is still much work to do.
  • LCMS members, schools and congregations have joined together to provide more than $3 million toward the goal of eliminating malaria deaths in Africa by 2013.
  • Because of your support, Lutherans across the United States are making a difference in the fight against malaria. Together we can save lives and inspire hope!

Thank you for allowing us to share the message of LMI’s threefold approach of education, prevention and treatment during your recent district convention. We hope that you found the starter kit helpful in understanding LMI, and that we provided you with a foundation for success within your own congregation or school.

Have you thought about what you might do to support LMI? Do you need a congregational or school starter kit? Is there someone in your parish or school that "bubbles up" with a passion and love for this mission?

We would be happy to share ideas and campaign success stories to help you get started, as well as provide ample free resources so you can reach your own participation goals.

Contact us today and we’ll help you get started!

Cheers and blessings,

Dionne Lovstad-Jones
Manager, Development Outreach

PS: If your congregation or school is already undertaking work for LMI, thank you! We’d love to hear about your successes and see pictures. Share your stories and photos at
