Malaria is caused by a parasite transmitted through the bite of a female anopheles mosquito. But, malaria is 100 percent preventable and treatable. "Imagine No Malaria" is an ministry of The United Methodist Church, putting faith into action to end preventable deaths by malaria in Africa, especially the death of a child or a mother.
Come support this great cause to wipeout malaria and enjoy homemade ice cream.
