Leadership demonstrating Sympathy

2010-11-7 (Sun) 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Osaka University Global Leadership Program will hold a concert and talk show on Sunday, November 7 designed to evoke the sympathy of the audience, educate them about malaria, and raise money for buying mosquito nets.

Did you know that malaria claims a person's life every 30 seconds? Malaria is one of the three main infectious diseases. As long as you live in Japan, you may have little chance to become familiar with the disease. However, some 1 million people die annually, especially in Sub-Sahara Africa. According to the World Health Organization, 70% of the deaths are children aged 5 and younger as well as pregnant women. The lives and futures of many people are being claimed at this moment even as you read this article.

Both for educating people about malaria and raising money for mosquito nets, the Global Leadership Program Steering Committee will conduct a malaria prevention campaign during Osaka University Festival. Please join with us in raising money for mosquito nets for people suffering from malaria. We hope to see you there!
