This month’s 1% will treat 14,439 children and at-risk adults from neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) with our partner Schistosomiasis Control Initiative.

Controlling these devastating diseases is vital if we are to end the cycle of poverty from generation to generation. NTDs can prevent adults from working, keep children from learning and can mean the added burden of medical fees on already stretched families.

SCI will be allocating these funds later this year and we’ll be able to let you know where in the world your 1% is going then.
