BENEFICIARY, MECTIZAN® DONATION PROGRAM
BAFANG, CAMEROON
Ngo Yeba Anastasie

is a 72-year-old river blindness patient in Cameroon’s Bafang district who has benefitted from The Task Force’s Mectizan® Donation Program (MDP) since 2004. She says the treatment has helped save her eyesight and she’s now able to look after her grandchildren. An estimated 205 million people, mostly in Africa, are at risk for river blindness. The disease is categorized as a neglected tropical disease (NTD) because the people it affects are among the most marginalized in society.
