As a Carter Center partner, your enduring and extraordinary support brings hope for a better future to millions of the world’s poorest people. You are saving people from the threats of neglected tropical diseases, from human rights abuses, and from violent conflict. And you are giving them new voice. On behalf of everyone at The Carter Center and our partners in communities worldwide, I thank you for helping to make our world a better place. [End PC opening narration] [Start music, b-roll, and titles; no narration] Your support was the catalyst for remarkable achievements this year … As of September 2017, only 10 cases of Guinea worm disease were reported in the world, all of them in Chad. Women in Liberia, Guatemala, and Bangladesh improved their lives with greater access to public information. Liberia gained 21 new mental health clinicians to focus on the needs of children and adolescents. Our innovative Syria conflict maps laid the groundwork for peace negotiations. More than 100,000 surgeries saved the sight of trachoma patients in Africa. Election observation in Liberia and Kenya empowered peaceful, democratic change. Guatemala is now completely free of river blindness. More than 70 activists and leaders from 31 countries convened to share strategies for protecting human rights. Thank you for being the person the world needs now. [End video]
