Target TB

Did you know that one person dies of TB every 15 seconds?
-that it costs only £40 for a six month drug treatment to save one life?

Neither did I. Until I heard Felicity Kendal's appeal on behalf of Target TB on BBC4 this morning.

This is a not-for-profit organisation based in Brighton, established in 2003 by the Ryder-Cheshire Foundation.
Target TB gives funding, support and advice to local partner organisations in Southern Africa and South Asia which work directly with impoverished communities affected by TB

Donations: Freepost BBC Radio 4 Appeal. Credit cards: Freephone 0800 404 8144.

This is one charity I will definitely support.
