From Episcopal Life online

NetsforLife, Episcopal Relief and Development‘s program partnership to combat malaria, received a three-year, $1.34 million grant for its work in Ghana from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

“We’re excited and pleased to receive this grant,” said Rob Radtke, ERD president. “In particular, this award recognizes the unique reach of the Anglican Communion in the remotest regions of Africa. NetsforLife utilizes this network of churches, faith-based groups and other organizations to benefit communities unreached by national health programs. I have personally visited our programs in Ghana and I can attest to their life-saving impact.”

“The USAID funding will allow us to target 140,000 people in some of the hardest-to-reach communities in northeastern Ghana,” Shaun Walsh, executive director of NetsforLife. “These populations include approximately 25,000 children under five and 7,000 pregnant women, who are among those most vulnerable to malaria.”
