WORMFREE WORLD via Crowdrise
December 11, 2011
Intestinal worms are a leading source of malnutrition, growth stunting, and mental retardation in children, affecting more than 400,000,000 (that 400 hundred MILLION, a staggering number)! These worms keep generations trapped in poverty. All the drugs we use now were developed for farm animals-- we have yet to develop a cure just for humans. Our goal is to develop the first human-oriented cures to remove the parasites and bring these children out of poverty. We need your generosity and donations for our research operations to discover and take to clinical trials new and better cures! Our goal: is to have 77 people sponsor our runner for $1/mile. That's just a $13 donation to end one of the worst diseases for children worldwide.
Feel good. Feel proud. Raise health equality in the world.
