Afternoon tea?


Bhagwati Thapa typifies the spirit of many lymphatic filariasis patients who opened their homes and shared their stories to help us document the disease. In the photo Bhagwati is inviting us to stay for afternoon tea - which we gladly accepted. Bungmati, Nepal.

Lymphatic filariasis is a devastating parasitic worm infection spread by mosquitoes that affects 120 million people in 55 countries around the world.
