Saugatuck Students Help Malawi Children Fight Malaria

Save The Children gift
The fifth grade class of Westport’s Saugatuck Elementary School learned about malaria and decided to help children at risk from contracting this life-threatening disease. The class held a school-wide walkathon and other fund-raising activities and raised more than $4,350. Today they donated this money to children in Malawi, Africa through Save the Children, which will use the money to treat Malawi children at their schools. Treatment in a school setting encourages school attendance and allows doctors to track students’ medical health.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
