Help us end needless morbidity and mortality
Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya are all rampant in the Caribbean and ruining the lives of mothers, fathers and children
Local transmission of chikungunya has been reported on most islands of the Caribbean. Outbreaks in this region are ongoing with over 1.5 million suspected and confirmed cases in the Americas reported since December 2013.
Zika virus generally causes a self-limiting disease, but can result in severe microcephaly and other birth defects in pregnant women. 22 countries in the Americas have confirmed cases of congenital syndrome associated with Zika virus infection. The disease may also cause some cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome. In 2015, half of all travel-related cases of Zika originated in the Caribbean. Currently more than 80 pregnant women in Florida have tested positive for the virus, and a baby has been born with microcephaly.

To help eradicate mosquito-borne diseases is a challenge. Cooperation among federal and local governments, individual communities and NGOs is necessary. But the technology now exists in several forms to combat the mosquitoes directly, safely and effectively with less use of potentially dangerous pesticides.
While you can volunteer with us directly, even traveling to provide needy communities with materials and education, there's much you can do on your own. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, hosting events, campaigning, buying gifts, and involving your school or company.
Dengue virus remains a major problem in the Caribbean, with more than 80,000 confirmed cases and over thirty deaths in 2015. Typically, symptoms arise three to fourteen days after exposure. Those infected may experience a high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint pains, and a rash. However, the virus sometimes progresses further, leading to death.
