Parasites Without Borders Raises $50,000 To Help Reopen FIMRC’s Project Bududa, Uganda Site

With a mission to bring healthcare resources to underserved communities, New York City-based global health nonprofit, Parasites Without Borders (PWB), raised $50,000 to help reopen the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children’s (FIMRC) Project Bududa, Uganda site. Due to the pandemic, FIMRC had to stop in-person volunteer opportunities at their Bududa, Uganda site and therefore were lacking the necessary funds to continue operating the clinic.
