Worship In Action is partnering with Operation Blessing to combat the spread of the Zika virus in Central and South America in a unique way – by reproducing and distributing mosquito-eating fish. Zika virus spreads through domesticated Aedes mosquitos that bite during daytime hours, and lay their eggs in water storage buckets, barrels, tubs and other containers around homes without indoor plumbing systems. Zika virus is a serious illness that is especially harmful for pregnant women and their fetuses. It can spread from mother to fetus and is commonly linked to a birth defect called Microcephaly, where babies are born with smaller than average heads and brain damage. Zika is a serious and growing global health threat, and Worship In Action is proud to do our part in making a difference.
