Impact: Changed lives, measured in numbers

Jessica Nipp Hacker

​Through the wonderful generosity of ELCA members, we have been able to support the new malaria programs of our Lutehran partners in 13 countries in Africa.  On this blog, we have shared dozens of stories about people whose lives have been changed by Lutheran malaria programs in their communities. Now it's time for some numbers!
