25 April is a day of unified commemoration of the global effort to provide effective control of malaria around the world. This year’s World Malaria Day marks a critical moment in time. The international malaria community has less than a year to meet the 2010 targets of delivering effective and affordable protection and treatment to all people at risk of malaria, as called for by the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon.

I passed by that Room of Doom every day for two weeks when I was working at an odd job between classes.
It was a terrible place but when I first went by I had no reason to know the terror lurking within.
Parents brought their children to that room. The children had received a death sentence that no lawyer could mitigate. The children had received a diagnosis of juvenile leukemia. There was no cure, not even a treatment. All that waited for the children was an early painful death.
