New to the VII website is a story by Ed Kashi about the END Fund’s work to eliminate river blindness in Senegal. The story shares scenes from Tambanoumouya, Senegal, where 66% of the village suffered from the disease in 1986, but today this illness is nearly nonexistent.

River blindness (onchocerciasis) is an eye and skin infection caused by parasitic worms. Currently, over 198 million people in over 31 countries require treatment, the majority being in Africa. The disease is transmitted by the repeated bite of black flies on fast-flowing rivers and streams carrying the parasite.
