For the 2012-2013 school year we dewormed 9,000+ kids in 33 schools. This year, we were able to add all the satellite locations that have sponsored kids as well as a few new sister church schools. That alone is a huge expansion. For the 2013-2014 school year, we dewormed 12,000+ students and teachers! The deworming program is not just for the sponsored kids, but for every child in all of our schools that have sponsored kids.
Overall, the HFK Deworming Program is just a small part of the child sponsorship program. The one pill per year and prevention education once per year is a tiny financial part of the puzzle, but is having a huge impact in the health of these students.
To those of you who sponsor a child, we want to say a big THANK YOU! Your sponsorship is impacting more than just the single child you sponsor—it’s impacting the whole school.
