Faith in action ...

... Mapping malaria nets. (Hat tip, Maxine Clarke.)

Tony Blair, has been suggesting that religions can help the fight too. ... Blair says that the newly created Tony Blair Faith Foundation will seek to bring together "the six great religions, and incite them to resolve together problems instead of creating them." Fighting malaria should be one, he says: "Attacking the scourge of malaria, which kills one million people a year, would be a great example of working together. Can you imagine the effectiveness of a chain made up of mosques, temples, and churches scattered throughout the farthest reaches of Africa, distributing prophylactic mosquito nets which save so many lives? This would be faith in action."
