DRC365 #339

Malaria test. Living and traveling across the tropics means you are prone to catching malaria. Three times it crossed our path in Congo and each time we learnt to spot the signs and seek immediate treatment. It is a deadly disease, quickly treated and preventable, yet unfortunately many in Congo are still vulnerable to the illness. Across Africa 290,000 children lost their lives to malaria last year (WHO).
