Thousands of people in Uganda suffer from a foot parasite called jiggers.
Through education and medical care, we seek to make Uganda jigger free.
HOW BAD ARE JIGGERS?
Jiggers keep kids from going to school, running, and playing.
They prevent people from walking and working.
People with jiggers often become outcasts.
This small parasite negatively impacts every aspect of a person’s life.
Though jiggers are a complex problem the solutions are simple and can change a person’s life forever.
We need your help. Here’s how you can get involved.
