Local church helps with malaria prevention in Africa
Growing up in Nigeria, Cyprian Obasi got sick with malaria almost every month. He would get high fevers, headaches, chills and pain all over.
There was medication to treat the symptoms, but he said the side effects were also sickening. If left untreated the disease can cause severe complications and eventually death.
"Ninety-nine percent of people bitten by mosquitoes will have malaria," the Woodbury resident said.
