|For he will deliver the needy who cry out,|
the afflicted who have no one to help.
|For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.|

Ninety percent of those who die from malaria are African children. Yet, a simple bed-net to protect a child's bed is just $10.
