Now, can you imagine many, many children sharing a small living space in less than pristine conditions? Fungus runs rampant. That's why I need you to join me as a Fungus Fighter! I have partnered with AHOPE for Children, which cares exclusively for HIV+ children in Ethiopia. One of the very hardest things for AHOPE to collect in sufficient quantities is medicinal creams. Basic over-the-counter items are desperately needed to treat skin conditions, cuts, scrapes, etc., that you would expect from kids in general and specifically in a large group of kids living in close quarters.
Antifungal – Specifically Tinactin (Tolnaftate) and/or Lamisil (Allylamines)
I will be collecting the antifungal creams through Sunday, July 15th. The goal is to collect 100 tubes. I know if we all band together as "FUNGUS FIGHTERS" that we can meet this urgent need. Please share this with your friends, family, church, co-workers, neighbors, Mom's groups, homeschool groups, etc. Anyone have connections to a pharmacy that likes to make charitable donations???
As far as getting the donations to me, local friends contact me, and I'll be happy to arrange and come pick it up. Louisville friends - I'll probably have a specific day to head that way. Lexington friends - I'm there often and can arrange pick-up as well. Wonderful blog readers scattered throughout, I definitely don't want to leave you out. If you are willing to pick up a tube, two, or ten, you can message me for an address to ship it too. Another option that might be more cost-effective would be to PayPal or send a check, and I can make the purchase for you.
If you have questions and or want to get involved, please email me.... firstname.lastname@example.org
Let the Fungus Fight begin!
