400.000 people die from malaria every year, and 94% of these deaths occur in the African continent. Children under the age of 5 are the most vulnerable group and constitute 67% of these deaths. Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world, is a country where malaria is its most common disease. IHH, which has taken steps with the aim of containing the disease and reducing malaria-related deaths in the region, sent 141.000 packets of malaria medicine to Niger.
