May Web Feature Highlights Friends in Atlanta

May 22, 2012

This month’s Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development focuses on the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta’s efforts to engage congregations and communities in the fight against malaria through the NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund. The feature especially highlights 11th-grader Adriana Embus, the winner of the 2012 World Malaria Day Make a Difference Essay Contest, who wrote about encountering malaria on a school visit to Liberia, and how it inspired her to take action and raise awareness about the deadly disease.

Please note that the Power of Partnerships and Friends of Episcopal Relief & Development web features are now on an alternating schedule. The next Power of Partnerships will be published in June.
