Deworming Clinic

Parasitic worms is a major problem in Armenia Bonito. Many people have parasitic worms because the do not wash food properly, have poor hygiene or have poor drinking water. Worms can result in stomach pains, anemia, diarrhea, malnutrition, poor performance in school or work and more. This is a major issue for poor countries. The majority of parasitic worms can be prevented by taking a simple pill once every six months.

On Saturday we hosted deworming clinic in Armenia Bonito. We provided education, medicine and evangelism for over 100 people.

Take a look at this 3 minute video to learn more:
