Neglected no more - because I matter.

Our Impact

Every person is precious and every person belongs, and we work within hard-to-reach and marginalized communities to make that a reality. Together with supporters, staff, and partners on the ground, we work to ensure that people affected by Neglected Tropical Diseases can access treatment and heal with the support of their loved ones.
