We are happy to announce that we have received a seed grant for our project titled “Community-driven Campaign on Infantile Epileptic Spasms Syndrome (CACHIESS)” from the Pollination Project.
Infantile Epileptic Spasms Syndrome is a potential life-threatening but treatable form of epilepsy that affects infants aged between 0 and 2 years. Early recognition and treatment are crucial to the long-term survival of affected children. Regrettably, community knowledge of this condition is low, which leads to late presentations.
Our project aims to address this knowledge gap through a yearly awareness-raising campaign that will involve educational activities targeting parents, health workers, and teachers.
We are immensely grateful to @thepollinationproject for seeding this project that will help save the lives of many infants.
