THE STORY:

Planting Peace wrote -

Have you ever wondered why starving children have bloated, distended bellies? One word: WORMS! These parasitic intestinal worms consume up to 20% of a child’s nutritional intake. For children who are already not getting enough nutrition, removing these worms can be the difference between life and death. The good news is that deworming a child is as easy as delivering them a pill and the treatment is only 1.3 cents. The goal of Planting Peace is to deworm one million starving children a month, making this one of the largest hunger relief funds in the world by reach.

Since 2007, when honored with the CNN Hero award for our efforts in deworming, Planting Peace has succeeded in delivering deworming treatments to over 14 million children worldwide.
