Shoes for Barefoot Children

Our Goal | Challenge:

In conjunction with their mission to help eradicate the Jigger Menace, the Mohsin and Fauzia Jaffer Foundation has made it a mission of theirs to help those who are in need of basic footwear. Kenya has acknowledged this deficiency and as a nation has since made greater efforts to help its people. March 3rd is recognized as National Jigger day. In their post-treatment of Jigger, children are provided rubber shoes that help prevent re-infestation. Hygiene and cleanliness are also being taught.  Volunteers and medical professionals are teaching people how to trim nails and properly clean susceptible areas. 

The MF Jaffer Foundation has helped to provide thousands of shoes and will continue to support this mission.
