MAP International is responding immediately to fulfill field requests for strong mosquito repellents, pain relievers and antibiotics. Our primary goal is to protect mothers and their unborn children from this virus that is known to cause birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes.
There is no vaccine for the Zika virus, which is why our efforts to control it are key. MAP is seeking support to provide pain relievers, antibiotics and mosquito repellent to our teams and partners in the affected regions. Your donation today will provide urgently needed protection supplies to mothers and children in need in Latin America.
The WHO’s director-general said that where the virus is active there’s been a “steep increase in the birth of babies with abnormally small heads and in cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome.” Both can cause severe developmental issues, potential paralysis and sometimes death.
MAP is a Top Rated Charity with 4 out of 4 stars and is listed as #5 on Charity Navigator's 10 Top-Notch Charities.
