WATCH: Aardman Joins the Fight Against Malaria


Animation studio Aardman Animations has recently contributed their talents and resources to help in the fight against one of the world’s oldest and deadliest diseases – Malaria – by producing and releasing a new PSA. This PSA aims to teach people about the history of malaria and reminds people of the dangers of the disease, which is said to claim more than 445,000 lives a year. Hugh Laurie narrates the video. You can check it out below:

The campaign, called Malaria Must Die so Millions Can Live, calls for leaders who are meeting at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London next month. It is particularly important because Commonwealth populations are disproportionately affected by the disease and leaders are being urged to make new commitments to beating it at CHOGM.

“This wonderful animation by Aardman tells the story of malaria, our oldest and deadliest enemy — an enemy we’re now in a position to defeat, once and for all,” says Laurie. “I am proud to be part of this campaign calling for bold, political action to fight the disease, because it remains one of the biggest killers of children and yet is entirely preventable, and costs less than a cup of tea to treat. We can all make tea, can’t we? I hope everyone who watches this film shares it and supports the Malaria Must Die campaign, so that millions can live.”
