This Post Contains Graphic Material


END7’s new campaign video is incredibly hard to watch. I couldn't make it past the roundworms.

The video raises awareness of the seven most prevalent neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) including whipworm, hookworm, snail fever, elephantiasis, river blindness and trachoma. All horrible, but highly treatable for around 50 cents per person.

With support from loads of celebrities including Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Katy Perry, Eddie Redmayne and Stella McCartney, END7 hopes to build support for the global effort to control and eliminate the seven NTDs that plague more than 1 billion people around the world. Go to END7.org to sign a pledge to inspire policy leaders and philanthropists to take action and help end these horrific diseases by 2020.
