De-Worming at Rays of Light Orphanage School and St. Luke’s Nursery School

Posted: Tue, November 29, 2016 | By: Past Projects



​The “Eric Oliver Clinics” - founded by a Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) Board member, but funded now by Bob Pellissier - have de-wormed children attending Rays of Light Orphanage School and St. Luke’s Primary School.

Parasitic intestinal worm infections are a serious problem in Subsaharan problem, but they are inexpensive to combat. Studies have shown that the single best health intervention - per dollar - is to de-worm children.
