What we do

Lymphatic Filariasis

Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) can cause swelling of body parts and alter the immune system.

It is the second major cause of long-term disability in the world after mental health. 36 million people are estimated to live with the chronic condition. 

893 million people are estimated to be at risk of infection. 

Self-care developed and taught by us, reduces swelling so that people can get back to their normal lives.
