Doreen is a member of a family that's all jiggered. She's beautiful, she's intelligent and deserves nothing any close to this. She deserves better and RUS found her before it got worse. We're going to do all we can like we've done everywhere our feet tread to free them from the heinous bug. This video is intended for educational purposes and to raise awareness of the health problems that jiggers cause in Africa. MEDICAL CONDITION: The condition depicted is known as "Tungiasis". It is an infestation of the skin by a burrowing flea. These fleas tend to infest those who have inadequate living conditions and sanitation. The flea lives both outside around warm-blooded mammals and inside poorly constructed homes. It inhabits dust on floors, cracks in walls and bedding. Shoes protect to some degree but are often not affordable or adequate. Email Jim directly jim@killthejigger.org Call Jim - +254723323186 Donate through PayPal - killthejigger.org/donate.php
