Mossy Foot Vocational Training

MF vocational training provides a means for patients to support themselves and their families. Here a barber who also works his farm near Kercheche stops farming and "opens shop" whenever someone needs a haircut.

One barber saved his earnings and bought medicine to treat MF patients. In his spare time he would go to their huts and treat them.

It is a common story in to hear of patients who have been helped by the Mossy Foot Project helping newer patients.

Daly's Off to Ethiopia

Today, Jim (President/CEO of the Mossy Foot Project) and Sharon Daly are off for a 2-week visit to our sites in Ethiopia. The weeks will be filled with meetings with staff to discuss and plan for the work of the Project in the year ahead. Also on the agenda will be settling issues in clearing the land that the Ethiopian government has gifted to the project for establishing a permanent future headquarters and discussing plans for the initial stages of the construction project.
Jim and Sharon will be joined by staff from the Koinonia Christian Fellowship of Hanford, CA to help plan for a team visit from the church later this year.
Please pray for the Daly's health and safety as well as very productive times of meeting during their visit.

New Vehicle on It's Way

Our new, 13 passenger ( very small people) Toyota Land Cruiser will be making the rounds to he Mossy Foot clinics soon!

It has been several years that we have awaited another vehicle. The roads in Ethiopia can only be traversed efficiently via 4WD vehicles. Hence the availability of adequate transportation has limited the expansion of our work beyond our 15 moblile clinics until now.

Our vehicle has reached port Djibouti. Hopefully, depending on the availability of a car carrier, our Land Cruiser will reach Addis Ababa/Ethiopia in a few weeks.
