Join us to support agricultural workers worldwide!
A fatal epidemic called chronic kidney disease of undetermined causes (or CKDu) has been killing the world’s most vulnerable workers for decades. Those impacted by CKDu are predominantly agricultural laborers, their families, and the communities they live in. These CKDu-ravaged communities are impoverished and treatment for the disease in most cases is not easily accessible or financially feasible. These laborers work for such industries as sugar, rice, coconut and nuts. They are the workers who harvest the crops that end up as the sugar we put in our coffee and the rice in our cupboards.
These workers are sick, dying and need your help! Support La Isla Network as we improve working conditions associated with CKDu, improve access to care, and support a new generation of leaders in the community where we began our work.
For the last decade, La Isla Network [La Isla Foundation 501(c)(3) ] has been dedicated to ending CKDu among workers and their communities worldwide. As La Isla Network continues to expand its strategic focus globally, we are in need of funding to help generate, support and execute our evidence-driven solutions on a macro level.
