On June 13, 2013, The Carter Center distributed a press release announcing that Plateau and Nasarawa states are the first Nigerian states to stop the transmission of lymphatic filariasis (LF), also commonly known as elephantiasis.

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, the Clarke Cares Foundation is cancelling its annual charity golf outing. The health and well-being of our golfers, sponsors and volunteers are our primary concerns. We look forward to when we can begin to transition back to a new “normal” and have rescheduled the golf outing for Tuesday, August 24, 2021. So mark your calendar, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
Supporting Local Agencies During the Covid19 Pandemic
To-date, the Clarke Cares Foundation has sent over 263,000 mosquito bed nets to The Carter Center for distribution to Nigerian families in the fight against malaria and lymphatic filariasis. Despite the critical ongoing need for nets, President Jimmy Carter recently called for donations to The Carter Center to be redirected to local groups that are helping to reduce the suffering caused by this pandemic. We too embrace these same thoughts and encourage our donors to support agencies that are providing assistance to those affected by the coronavirus.
The Clarke Cares Foundation is proud to have added a new partner, Pure Water for the World, to help us expand our mission of helping others to live healthier by aiding to protect them from mosquito and water-borne diseases.
Pure Water for the World, a non-profit founded in 1999, is focused on improving lives by empowering people with access to life’s most basic necessities…safe water and sanitation.
