Hey everybody! Thanks for all of your support thus far for our crowdfunding campaign [https://experiment.com/projects/community-based-leishmaniasis-research-in-sri-lanka]! Thank you to everyone who has funded, shared, and gotten involved – we are so grateful for your support! We want to keep you posted on what we have accomplished so far: We raised 39% (2,183 USD) of the funds! Right now, we have 14 days and we still need to raise 3,467 USD of 5,650 USD that will allow us to control the sand fly and leishmaniasis disease in the Madawachchiya rural site in Sri Lanka. We are very excited to get this campaign off the ground! We are determined to meet and hopefully even exceed our goal, but we can’t do it without you. Please consider making a contribution and pass our campaign on to as many people as you can and help us get the rest of the way there. Sincerely, Thank you!
