82% 1.1M 14 minutes 1 year ago by Rus Patrons - Charity Everyday

Rhoda is a bit violent, but she let us help her with jiggers, and she's on course towards recovery. She definitely needs close monitoring and support that has to be infused with friendship, and she seemed to allow us befriend her to the surprise of all those who were present. We will do what we can to help her. She deserves more love and care. 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.
