How do I do that?
By praying and giving for treatment to cure children of jiggers – a tiny flea that burrows into kids’ feet and if left untreated can stop them from walking to school every morning.
What does it cost?
It costs just $1 to treat a foot.
When will I see the difference?
When we have raised enough to treat 2000 feet.
What will I see?
The Kids playing and walking to school, Kids at Eshibinga primary school communicating and blogging, giving their stories. Improved self esteem, grades improving and most of all we shall see the glory of God in the tiny faces of these kids.
Tell me more…
Jiggers fleas may be tiny, but don’t be fooled by the size – once they burrow into children’s feet, they wreak huge consequences. Left untreated, they cause pus-filled sores, itchiness, disabling pain, inflammation, ulceration, gangrene, sepsis, auto-amputation, even typhoid and death. The good news is the cost of treatment is also minute – a measly $1 a foot.
What Peter and the teachers need:
Teacher Peter doesn’t need any high tech equipment, just needles, disinfectant, painkillers and a lot of patience. He works with other teachers and his computer class at Eshibinga primary school. He is also partnering with a local Christian church to help educate the kids on hygiene. His team meticulously remove the fleas, and educate children how to avoid re-infection.
Thank-you to everyone who is helping us cure jiggers in Kenya.
This project is ongoing, so please spread the word, “like” the project on facebook and tell your friends and I’ll show you more of the difference that we’re making together.
