MAP International is working to provide children around the world are in need, with medicines and clean drinking water. For many, common fever reducers and pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are out of reach, causing prolonged illness and suffering. The need for clean water in the developing world frequently causes children to suffer from severe stomach-aches and diarrhea, further jeopardizing their health. Please join MAP International in creating real hope and lasting change.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The lack of antibiotics and clean drinking water is dramatically shortening the lives of children in the developing world. Nearly 1 in 5 deaths of children worldwide are caused by pneumonia - in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia alone, it accounts for 85% of child deaths. Children in third world countries frequently suffer from diarrhea caused from the poor quality of their water. All this could be changed when antibiotics and clean water are made available by MAP International.
How will this project solve this problem?
Through its global supply chain of donated medicines and through its bargaining power, MAP International is able to acquire analgesics, antibiotics, anti-virals and anti-parasitic medicines and water filters at extraordinarily low prices. We provide these to our network of hospitals, clinics and pharmacies in some of the poorest communities in the world, so they can prevent serious complications and greatly reduce pain and suffering.
Potential Long Term Impact
Through this project, MAP International will provide medicines to nearly 175,000 children and their families and clean water up to 1,000 people in developing countries, dramatically improving their quality of life.
