Go together for SCI

Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, Jane Whitton, Liz Hollenberg

My page:

If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go together.
- African proverb

By the end of 2016, the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative at Imperial College London had treated 140 million people suffering from illnesses related to schistosomiasis infection.  But there are 200 million people, living in 78 countries, who still need treatment if they are to avoid the anameia, organ damage, fatigue and early death caused by this preventable disease. 

Click here to learn more about this devastating tropical disease.

That's why Jane Whitton and Liz Hollenberg, programme managers for the SCI, are running the London Marathon together this year.  With your help, they hope to raise £10,000 - enough to treat 30,000 children and adults infected with schistosomiasis.

When you make your gift today, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your gift will be doubled - matched pound for pound.  Each dose costs just £0.33, less than a second-class postage stamp.  But your gift does more than provide medicine.  It ensures that a sick child can go back to school, that an exhausted parent can return to work, that a community can move forward economically and culturally.

Jane and Liz believe enough in the SCI's work to run their first marathon ever, but they need your support.  Just click below to make your gift today, and leave a message to let Liz and Jane know that you're with them - and the SCI - all the way.
