Protect a Child

Children under the age of five in Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire are at risk from harmful worms and parasites. This can lead to malnutrition, Vitamin A deficiency, and cognitive delay at a young age.


Your help means deworming treatment and Vitamin A supplementation that will protect a child and ensures a healthy life.
