BENEFITING: Planting Peace
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.
