Update on the Buruli Ulcer Campaign

May 4, 2009

As part of our campaign on Human Dignity, the MU Chapter of Amnesty is joining forces with several other on campus organizations to bring awareness and aid to those suffering with a bacterium caused condition known as the Buruli Ulcer. Many regions of the global South are affected by this tropical disease, which is further exacerbated by the lack of health care facilities and treatment supplies. This, therefore, is a direct affront on human dignity and cause for action on our parts.

During the upcoming Fall 2009 semester, we will be hosting events to increase awareness of the disease and helping, wherever needed, in the completion of the overall MU Buruli Ulcer campaign’s current goal of providing 46 motorcycles, which will provide many more suffering individuals with access to far-off health care facilities.

For more information, please visit our Joint Campaigns – Buruli Ulcer page, related links and/or contact us at anytime!

Let’s Help Make a World that supports Human Dignity for All!
