Neglected no more - because I matter.

Thank you for protecting a child this Christmas. Children under the age of 5 in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire are extremely vulnerable to worm infestation. These worms enter their bloodstream as they play outside, and grow silently in their bodies. If not treated these worms steal the children’s nutrients, damage the child’s growth, and can lead to cognitive delay and blindness.

Through your gift children will be helped with de-worming treatments and Vitamin A supplementation. This will treat and prevent infestation from hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm.

All gifts are matched 3X – so your $50 becomes $200!
