Riverblindness is a debilitating disease that causes blindness in thousands of people in Africa and Latin America.
Riverblindness is a parasitic disease transmitted through the bite of the small blackfly that breeds along the banks of fast-flowing rivers.
Humans get infected with the disease during their regular trips to infested rivers for their daily activities such as farming, hunting, fishing and fetching water.
The disease is characterized initially by a rash, severe itching, thickening and depigmentation of the skin, followed by visual impairment and eventually blindness.

Adopt a village or save a village is a program whereby your youth group, your church, your organization or you yourself can be associated with a riverblindness-endemic village in DRC through a small donation which will result in the protection of the villagers from the ravaging outcome of the disease and eventually to the elimination of the disease itself.
