Pastor Luky Cotto helps children with prizes at Casa del Pueblo's community fair, which raised $1000 for Imagine No Malaria.

Members of Casa del Pueblo, a United Methodist Latino ministry at Lehman UMC in Hatboro, PA, joined the movement to support the work of Imagine No Malaria on Saturday, June 1, when they hosted a community fair.
When Pastor Luky Cotto brought the idea to her church, the leadership loved the idea of helping mothers in Africa. They also liked the idea of leading the way for Latino churches and ministries in supporting the denomination’s effort to end malaria.
According to Rev. Cotto, at the initial planning meeting, one of her members, Luzbenia, from Honduras, said, “Pastor, when I was little I had malaria myself and I almost died. I really want us to help!”
