Every two minutes, a child under five dies of Malaria in Malawi. Malaria is a protozoan parasite that invades the red blood cells, which is transmitted by mosquitos. Symptoms include chills, high fever, sweating, pain in the abdomen or muscles, impaired consciousness, abnormal bleeding, convulsions, and organ dysfunction. I am going to research the negative effects it has caused on the children of the country of Malawi. I went to the impoverished village of Ngodzi and saw how the people were affected, especially children, by Malaria. There are several different methods of fighting Malaria in Malawi, some examples are pre-natal medication, Malaria treatments, mosquito nets or spray, and more medical clinics.
