Podoconiosis, podo for short, is a debilitating but completely preventable disease threatening millions in Ethiopia. With your support, IOCC can help eliminate it.
With donor support, IOCC is able to:
- train health professionals to provide treatment while teaching prevention methods
- equip community leaders with knowledge and confidence to teach others about podo and how to prevent it—while helping to dispel the social stigma attached
- treat those who have podo while helping them build a self-care routine they can manage on their own
Our podo work in Ethiopia is already making a difference. And with your help, we can do even more. Will you help us reach our goal of $135,000?
