A Swiss explorer is leading a malaria mission in one of the poorest and most remote places in Africa. Long-time river navigator Andy Leemann is leading a boat expedition to the Zambezi river. They’ll make stops in Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to bring nets and medicine to the region, but it’s mostly about raising awareness for African countries battling Malaria. The group Roll Back Malaria says as many as 3 million people die every year from the disease, mostly African children under 5 years old. World Radio Switzerland’s Alex Helmick spoke with Leemann, who was in Johannesburg, South Africa on his way to the Zambezi river.
