    One every 30 seconds–since there are so many cases of malaria among African children (although we’ll save that statistic for another question).

    one precious child every 30 seconds.

    And the answer is …

    30.

    In Africa a child dies from malaria every 30 seconds. However, those who survive are not left unaffected. Many children who live through malaria are left with brain damage or learning disabilities.
