Hi everyone hope you all doing safe and well out there.
Myself Emma 4th grader in Al Ain juniors British school @Al Ain UAE.
Can I take few minutes from you?
I am here to give awareness about NTDs-Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) river blindness and elephantiasis.Another side of the world is poorest people and they are unable to take care of their own health or day-to-day living.These diseases affect this poorest population. Shall we help them ?
I am joining with my school to do the fundraising campaign.I hope you all can spend at least 2 AED to support our brothers and sisters who are suffering from NTDs.
The Reach Campaign is a first-of-its-kind fundraising initiative to end the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) river blindness and elephantiasis. NTDs disproportionately affect the world’s poorest people, trapping their families in cycles of poverty. When adults suffer from such diseases, children are taken out of school to support their care.
Just 2 AED can provide the medicine and treatment to protect one person from river blindness, lymphatic filariasis (elephantiasis) and several other co-endemic diseases for the entire year.
Our target is to raise AED2million ($565,000) and we believe this can be achieved. If 100 people per school/organisation raise 500aed each ($136), we can easily surpass this.
Your support goes a long way, thank you.
