Our August 1% will treat approximately 27,083 children and at-risk adults from deadly neglected tropical diseases with our long-standing partner Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI).
Parasitic and bacterial infections including Schistosomiasis threaten millions of children worldwide. Treatment is cheap and effective but not always available. Without it those infected could die or suffer a lifetime of disabilities and severe pain. Ensuring all children and vulnerable adults are safe from this threat and can continue education, work and maybe one day support a family of their own, is crucial in ending extreme poverty.
We’re proud to have partnered with this outstanding charity since 2014 and in that time our donations have treated around 127,000 children and at risk adults.
