About us

UFAR is an African-inspired, US-based nonprofit charitable organization approved in the US as a tax-exempt corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in September 2004.


Its primary mission is to participate, in partnership with other organizations, in the eradication of onchocerciasis, also commonly known as riverblindness, a major public health problem in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

A comprehensive overview of UFAR's origin, goals and activities can be found in the pages on this website. Questions and comments are welcome and your support would be greatly appreciated.
