    Children gettting de-worming pills

    In the last couple of months we have made great progress in advancing our  mission to de-worm Haiti. Much of Haiti’s population is infected with intestinal worms that can take almost 20% of a person’s daily nutritional intake. This is especially damaging to children who then suffer from malnutrition and even risk death, despite already struggling to be fed.

Our staff in Haiti, and in DC, works hard to bring you the latest news from International Action. Stay updated by reading our newsletters and reports from the field.
