Residents of Kamina, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, clean an irrigation canal as part of an effort to destroy breeding grounds of malaria-carrying mosquitoes. The project, sponsored by the United Methodist Church, is part of a larger effort to eradicate the disease, which kills more than a million people a year, most of them in Africa.
