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 parasitic worm, which lives on in the body and eventually causes blindness, among 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.

You can help. This Gift That Gives More™ protects 50 Africans from river blindness by providing a once-a-year pill that kills the parasite and preserves the precious gift of vision, through The Charities Advisory Trust.


Report from the Field

Between July 2009 and June 2010, this Gift That Gives More™ paid for the treatment of approximately 5,550 children.
