I will be going to haiti again to treat intestinal parisites(worms)I will be backpacking around the Dominican for a Week and will travel into haiti to treat the worms.If you have ever seen pictures of children with the big pot bellies living in third world countries it is caused by these worms. The worms eat up to 20% of a person Nutritional intake. I treat people with only one tabelet and the cost is only $0.05(american).I suggest to any body who has traveled should looking into treating there self. have a nice day

Hello Happygrass!
What type of worm is it? Nematoads? Are you going as part of a school/medical group? It sounds facinating! What is the medication given? How often does it need to be repeated? If you donate money for this treatment, how do you verify that it was used for that purpose and not administrative costs?

Well First let me say that anyone is always welcome to join me on one of my de-worming trips.//// I use the Drug albendazole 400mg one tablet.This medication works very well and is safe to give to children that dont even have with that in mind you can pass out to any one and every one. common roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), hookworm, whipworm, pinworm, heart worm, Strongyloides, Stercoralis, Ancylostoma, caninum, toxocara worm and trichinosis. Size can vary from .2 to 35 centimeters. worms lay up to 3,000 to 200,000 a day./// Well as far as administartion cost I can tell you that no one gets paid except are orphanage staff and not even me the Founder. Malaria medication cost my foundation 7-14 dollars depending on the strength per 100 treatments. United nations gets it cheaper than i and people are dying in sudan and around the world for what?
