More than 880 million children around the world are infected with worms right now and in urgent need of treatment.
For many families, there is nowhere to turn due to shortage of medicines, especially in countries like Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Burundi, South Sudan and Malawi.
Worms are a leading cause of physical and intellectual impairment in children. The parasites cause trauma by burrowing into children’s intestines, robbing them of nutrients. This can stunt a child’s growth and leave them susceptible to dangerous diseases.
