Happy New Year!

Posted: January 1, 2016

Wishing you a joyful and peaceful 2016! We are pleased to let you know that with profits made from sales in 2015, Picture A Healthier World has made a contribution to UNICEF (through UNICEF’s Inspired Gifts) to support their deworming projects.* PAHW’s donation was enough to protect 2,800 children from worms (1 deworming tablet is required per child). We thank each and every photographer, shopper, and friend for your support of the project, and look forward to strengthening our impact in 2016!

The good news is that worms are entirely preventable with adequate sanitation and good hygiene practices. The bad news is that a third of the world’s population still doesn’t have improved sanitation facilities. Globally, 2.5 billion people (36% of the world's population) do not use improved sanitation facilities (safe, clean toilets), resulting in contaminated soil conditions facilitating the transmission of intestinal worms. There are 1.5 billion worm infections across the globe, affecting one quarter of the world’s population. School-age children have the highest intestinal worm infection prevalence of any group, with an estimated 47% of children ages 5-9 in the developing world suffering from infection of worms such as hookworm, whipworm and roundworm. Worms can impair nutritional status by causing internal bleeding leading to malabsorption of nutrients. As a result, children with worms suffer from malnutrition, growth stunting, and cognitive and educational deficits.

Treatment of children with deworming tablets can reduce the transmission of worms and lead to better nutritional status and health. Read more about the devastating impact of worms on UNICEF’s website.
*PAHW had planned to purchase UNICEF’s water purification tablets “Inspired Gifts” with 2015 profits. Unfortunately, this gift was temporarily unavailable on the UNICEF website; in its place, PAHW decided to purchase three deworming tablets gifts with profits earned in 2015. Moving forward in 2016, PAHW sales will support UNICEF's water purification tablets "Inspired Gift."
