The Reach Giving Circle consists of a collection of philanthropists who are dedicated to ending NTDs and empowering people to live healthy and dignified lives. Their generosity advances the work of the Reaching the Last Mile Fund, which aims to end river blindness and lymphatic filariasis in seven countries across Africa and the Middle East. A $100,000 contribution can either protect 200,000 people from contracting these diseases for a full year or 3,000 people over their entire life from the aforementioned NTDs.
Join the fight against river blindness blindness and lymphatic filariasis by starting a crowd fundraising campaign. Set a personal challenge and use YallaGive to raise money from supporters as you reach your goal and help create a brighter future for millions.
The Reach Campaign partners with the annual World NTD Day on January 30, which galvanizes the global community behind the common goal of ending NTDs. In 2021, global civil society advocates, community leaders, global health experts, and policymakers united to mark the second annual World NTD Day and in May, the World Health Organization officially recognized the day.
Like many neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), river blindness and lymphatic filariasis disproportionately affect the world’s most vulnerable people, trapping their families in cycles of poverty. Proceeds from the campaign will go to the Reaching the Last Mile Fund (RLMF). Administered by the END Fund, RLMF delivers prevention and treatment across 7 countries in Africa and the Middle East. Together we can help end river blindness and lymphatic filariasis and ensure a brighter future for millions.
