September 15 Malaria Day On Paltalk

Paltalk will team with Africa Fighting Malaria, and Hedge Funds vs. Malaria & Pneumonia to raise funds to fight the spread of malaria from 10 AM-5 PM New York time on September 15. Paltalk has pledged to donate $1 to the cause for every new registration it receives.

Among my guests in the Malaria Day room in Paltalk Studio B will be Lance Laifer, founder of Hedge Funds vs Malaria & Pneumonia; Richard Tren, director of Africa Fighting Malaria, Robert Mather from the Against Malaria Foundation and Scott Case, vice chairman of Malaria No More. Each of the guests will discuss their part in fighting malaria and how the average person can help save lives around the world. They will also take questions from video chat participants.

Malaria is the leading cause of death for children under age 5 in sub-Saharan Africa, and a predominant killer of pregnant women and their unborn children. This tragedy is due to lack of access to effective treatment and preventative tools. All funds donated by Paltalk will go toward providing an African in need of malaria treatment with a safe and effective one and toward conducting quality control of testing anti-malarial drugs within Africa.

In between interviews, members of the Little Angels, a group of Paltalk users who raise money for charity, will entertain audience members with music.
