APOPO

See how APOPO and the HeroRATs are making progress against TB! http://huff.to/1dY4eyy

THE STORY:

APOPO is a social enterprise that trains HeroRATs to detect (sniff out) landmines and Tuberculosis (TB).  With its headquarters in Tanzania, APOPO also has programs in Mozambique, Thailand, Angola, and Cambodia.  We invite you to support the HeroRATs in their global fight against landmines and tuberculosis. 

$10 will clear 107 square feet of minefield in Mozambique
$25 will feed one mine detection HeroRAT for 7 months
$50 will prevent one Tanzanian from a TB infection
$100 will clear 1,070 square feet of minefield in Mozambique
$500 will prevent 10 Tanzanians from TB infections
$8,000 will support the entire 9-month training process of one HeroRAT

The HeroRATs and their human colleagues have cleared over 8 million square meters of land in Mozambique and removed over 2,500 landmines.  This land can now be used by local communities for agriculture, access to water, clinics, and economic development!  Learn more about APOPO Mine Action.   

The HeroRATs have also found more than 4,500 TB-positive patients that were initially misdiagnosed by local hospitals in Tanzania and Mozambique.  These patients can now receive treatment and be cured of this terrible disease.  Because one patient can spread TB to 10 others, the HeroRATs have prevented the spread of TB to over 45,000 people!  Learn more about APOPO TB Detection

No need to worry about the HeroRATs, they are in no danger since they are too light to set off the landmines and we deactivate the tuberculosis samples before presenting to the rats.  Animal welfare is a top priority at APOPO and we make sure to pamper our rats so they can work hard to save lives!  

Remaining true to its core values of innovation, social transformation, quality, and diversity, APOPO has 99% of its workforce in developing countries and 95% are hired from local communities.  This significantly contributes to the economic development of the areas where APOPO maintains operations.  Learn more about APOPO. 

With your support, we are helping to rid the world of these terrible weapons of war and prevent the spread of a dreadful disease, one sniff at a time! Together, we are saving lives and limbs.  

APOPO's 501(c)3 registered sponsor in the United States is the King Baudouin Foundation US, Inc.  They will forward all donations to APOPO, which will be put to good use training HeroRATs to save lives!
