Close to 1.5 billion children around the world are infected with parasitic worms*. They are in urgent need of treatment such as deworming tablets and preventative interventions.

In places racked by conflict and extreme poverty — such as Ethiopia, Burundi and Somalia — worm infections are rampant and curable measures are in severe shortage. Soil-transmitted parasites first enter children’s bodies when girls and boys walk barefoot on infested ground or eat unsanitary food. The deadly worms then burrow into the intestines, causing pain and diarrhea. They also rob children of essential nutrients which can stunt their growth, impair their mental capacity and cause death.

Your donation today will DOUBLE in value with contributions from our generous partners to help ship and distribute life-saving deworming tablets, essential medicines and medical supplies to vulnerable children and families in hard-to-reach communities in Ethiopia, Burundi, Somalia, Tanzania, South Sudan and other countries.
