Please join with me
to help fight podo!
More than three million Ethiopians are afflicted with podoconiosis – or "podo" for short. It's an abnormal swelling of the feet and legs triggered by prolonged exposure to irritating minerals in red clay soils ... and 35 million more people are at risk for podo in Ethiopia alone.
People are suffering –
simply because they don't own a pair of shoes.
With your help, we can provide:
      • A sturdy pair of shoes
      • Instruction on foot hygiene and basic treatment
      • Awareness about the causes of podo
You can help us stamp out this disease and
improve people's lives.
Please join with me to help fight podo and
make a difference by making your gift today!
