#wormfreezone is back, bigger and better! After a stunning and fun filled experience at the Obalende Barracks last month, the QMC team is back with another edition and a set of cool celebrity volunteers.
This edition will hold at the Ijeh Police Barracks on the 16th of May from 9:00am and will feature Dj jimmy Jatt, Vector, Shaydee, Denrele Edun, Pita, Aisha Shaba, J’ Odie and Shonowo Busola.
Asides from deworming about a thousand children, there will also be an art and craft section, dance and aerobic sessions and a play corner.
QMC who have already de wormed over fifteen thousand kids in Nigeria so far through this program are not relenting in their fight against worms and worm infestation. In addition to deworming the kids, QMC and its celebrity partners will also educate and sensitize the environs on the effects, dangers & prevention of worms and worm infestation.
Children contract worms by walking around barefoot, drinking unclean water or eating unclean food Poor sanitation and hygiene, coupled with very little to no access to clean drinking water makes these children especially vulnerable . It is estimated that as many as 2.3 billion people are infested with intestinal round worms globally.
