Join Cure Kids in the fight against Superbugs

Join the fight against superbugs

The world is running out of effective antibiotics. In fact, it is one of the greatest threats to health today.

For many of us, this means that common infections could once again cause death. A grazed knee or routine surgery could result in an infection that is untreatable.

An estimated 700,000 people around the world die every year due to drug-resistant infections and, if new antibiotics are not discovered, this number is predicted to rise to 10 million people a year within a generation – that’s more than 27,000 people per day; more people that die from all types of cancer combined.

Cure Kids are leading the way to help find new treatments for antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

One of the country’s leading scientists in this area, Dr Siouxsie Wiles, is on a mission to test 1,000 unique soil and fungi samples for their potential to kill superbugs. If successful, these could form the beginning of urgently needed new treatments for increasingly untreatable infections.

We need you to help fund Dr. Wiles’s critical and urgent research to find new antibiotics.

Please join the fight against super bugs today and donate $30, $50, $100, or what you can towards the target of $250,000 needed to make this critical research possible.
