Help provide Africans with the medication they need for protection from river blindness.
Onchocerciasis, or river blindness, is a public health epidemic affecting millions of people worldwide. It is found in 36 African countries, and is the second leading infectious cause of blindness. The bite of the blackfly infects the unlucky victim with a parasite, which eventually causes blindness and many other problems.
Imagine a once-a-year medication that would kill any parasitic Onchocerca volvulus worms in your system. Now, imagine that this medication cost 40 U.S. cents. And finally, imagine not being able to obtain that 40-cent, vision-preserving medication for yourself or your children.
GreaterGood.org partners with The Charities Advisory Trust to provide the medication needed to have protection from river blindness for people in Africa. This medication is going to allow Families in Africa the ability to drink water without any fear.
