FICO Solutions and Queens of Africa Dolls - Promoting Healthy Futures
As part of its continued effort to prevent or treat children who have been infected with helminths parasites such as roundworms, flukes and tapeworms, Quick Medical Consult LTD conducts free community-wide deworming exercises.
Partners of the October 2015 effort included FICO Solutions, creator of the Queens of Africa Brand of dolls. Children that had successfully received the deworming medication were rewarded with a Naija Princess Doll. Some children also received comic books and Queens of Africa posters.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends regular deworming, especially in places where there is water contamnation. Worm infections interfere with nutrient uptake; can lead to anemia, malnourishment and impaired mental and physical development; and pose a serious threat to children’s health, education, and productivity. Infected children are often too sick or tired to concentrate at school, or to attend at all (Wiki). We're proud to support this effort! Photos by Ebere Thomas Photography
