THE WORM PROJECT
(A mission of the Franconia Mennonite Conference)
Our vision is to eradicate parasitic worms in children in the neediest nations of the world.
Through the generous monetary gifts of donors, we will purchase and distribute de-worming medicine at no cost to those who need it most. We desire to be God’s hands and feet, helping nourish the minds, bodies and souls of His children all over the world.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Worm Project is dedicated to eradicating parasitic worms that live in hundreds of millions of children and are a major cause of malnutrition in many of the poorer countries of the world.
The Worm Project will raise money to purchase de-worming medicine in large quantities at discounted prices. We will then work closely with partner organizations to distribute the medicine. This de-worming medicine is the most cost-effective way to impact the health of children.
We believe that God calls each one of us to help those who are less fortunate and need our help.
