END7 presents this story of one family's struggle and triumph over neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in Burangi, Kenya. Eight-year-old Fatuma has a big heart, and worries for her younger sister who has been afflicted with intestinal worms for four long years. She also cares lovingly for her grandmother who is disfigured by lymphatic filariasis. But her mother, Alice, is hopeful for the family's future -- because a simple packet of pills can keep them healthy and safe. Visit to help us end 7 NTDs by 2020. END7 is a campaign of the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, an initiative of the Sabin Vaccine Institute. Filming by Mo Scarpelli on behalf of the END7 campaign.
