Reach people suffering from Lymphatic Filariasis: Matched Gift!
$ 25.00–$ 100.00
Also known as “LF” or “elephantiasis,” this is a Neglected Tropical Disease that causes severe and painful swelling in the legs until they resemble that of an elephant.
Similar to other NTDs like Leprosy or Buruli ulcer, LF often leads to permanent disabilities and social stigma. It is an infection caused by microscopic parasitic worms transmitted by a mosquito in warmer parts of the world, and leads to swollen limbs and thickened skin. Treatment is free, and an early diagnosis will alleviate suffering and inflammation and will prevent transmission. But we need to reach people in time!
Thanks to a partner match, your gift of $25 today will be doubled!
