NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UMNS) – On both sides of the ocean, people are working to end a disease that takes the life of a child every 45 seconds. An NBC special TV program, “A Killer in the Dark: An Extraordinary Effort to Combat Malaria,” discusses efforts being undertaken by United Methodists and others to achieve this goal.

Presented by the National Council of Churches and produced by United Methodist Communications, the program will be available to local NBC affiliates starting May 1. Church members can contact their local stations and ask them to schedule “A Killer in the Dark.”
