You can help prevent river blindness from reaching children like Wajir


A regular gift is one of the best ways you can help free families from river blindness.

Mectizan®, the medicine used to stop river blindness in its tracks, needs to be delivered year after year for treatment to work. The medicine kills young worms in the body, but the adult worms can live and reproduce for up to 20 years.

That is why a monthly gift from you will ensure children and families are protected day and night from river blindness - and help them enjoy a bright future.

a month could help to train Outreach Volunteers to distribute and safely administer sight-saving medicine to people in rural communities.

a month could help protect 700 children like Wajir from contracting river blindness.

a month could help protect the sight of an entire village of 1,000 individuals, transforming the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
