The Story

Podoconiosis (podo) is a devastating and disfiguring disease caused when bare feet are exposed to volcanic soil. It affects millions of people in more than 15 countries, yet is preventable and treatable with simple washing and proper footwear. If farm workers are educated, podo can be eliminated in our lifetime.
