Screen 200 TB samples

Support APOPO and the HeroRATs to sniff out deadly Tuberculosis, a disease that kills 1.5m people every year.

In 2014, 9 million people fell ill with TB, but the disease is preventable and curable.

APOPO's Tuberculosis detection rats screen yearly tens of thousands of sputum samples collected from TB clinics in Dar es Salaam. As a result, many TB patients which were first diagnosed as negative are now identified and can be cured.

Gifts in action

TB now kills more people each year than any other infectious disease.
