Fighting parasites in Peru
Because of extreme poverty, poor sanitary conditions and lack of preventative education, intestinal parasites can be one of the primary causes of death worldwide, said Jordan Durso, OBI director for Peru.
Parasites not only cause physical pain and bleeding, but they also consume 25 percent of a person’s food intake, causing malnutrition and other severe, chronic health problems. That’s why Operation Blessing is fighting parasites in Peru with education and medication.
