Neglected no more - because I matter.

YOU can help ensure Every Child Thrives

“My first child always felt sick. He had diarrhea and whenever I gave him food, he didn’t want to eat… I would like to say a big thank you to my doctor and to all the people who fight for the goal of giving Vitamin A and deworming treatment to all our young children.”
Denise, a young mother living in West Africa

In partnership with local healthcare teams, MAP International, and Vitamin Angels, effect:hope is providing Vitamin A and deworming treatment to preschool children in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire.
It is essential that this treatment is done when the child is a preschooler because they are at their most intense growth period of life.

Please consider the number of children you can save today:
