We’ve raised funds to buy worm tablets for children across two local authority areas and last week 1,400 received their first treatment of the year. The cost of tablets plus the costs of travel and community sensitization is 50p a child. This last is important, since many village people have never taken tablets and without sensitisation parents may refuse treatment for their children because they are afraid.
The children in the photos are holding up their packets of medication and are very happy. They know the tablets will make a world of difference to their health and comfort.
