join us to help change lives

We’re a non-profit initiative supporting governments in sub-Saharan African countries. We support them to develop sustainable programmes against parasitic worm infections such as schistosomiasis and intestinal worms.  Since our foundation in 2002, we’ve supported the delivery of over 200 million treatments against these diseases. Our supported programmes are highly effective; parasitic worm infections can be reduced by up to 60% after just one round of treatment.

 

What are parasitic worm infections and how are they treated?

Watch our introductory video to find out about the diseases we help treat, and how we support deworming programmes to unlock the full potential of millions of children every year.

Curious about our school treatment programmes? In our latest 360° video we're giving you the chance to experience it yourself!

“To the people who help us treat children for schistosomiasis in Côte d’Ivoire, I really thank them with all my heart. Thanks to them, our children in the most remote parts of our country are healthy.” - Kenise Klah Keino, School Teacher.

We’ve helped so many children so far. But with over 1 billion people still infected with parasitic worms, there’s a lot of work left to do. Please donate what you can today to help reach even more people.
