JIGGERS

On a recent outing to Uganda I found myself on the back of a motorcycle visiting villagers and checking on the health of the children. One of their struggles is with jiggers. Jiggers are parasites that enter the body through the feet and crawl up the body of children. The solution to jiggers is quite simple, shoes.

I once thought that African children don’t wear shoes because they don’t want to. Such is not the case.

They would all love to wear shoes if they could afford their cost. We have shipped thousands of pairs of shoes and they are always enthusiastically received.
