St George’s, Wakefield: Malaria prevention

By Sally Bullivant

Our parishioner Kurt Petersen returned home from Uganda for the month of March.

In 2009, the Pennies 4 Change in Uganda initiative was launched and it has now been re-named Change 2 Change. The campaign is raising funds for the prevention of malaria infections in children and pregnant women by providing mosquito nets and shoes.

Kurt has also initiated a youth fellowship group to help young people with discussion and education. The mission of the youth group is to develop community growth and sustainability through creativity, prevention and education with biblical values. The campaign is inspiring change in the lives of youth and children in Uganda – one coin, one life and one community at a time.

Kurt returned to Uganda at the end of March.
