Mossy Foot Provides Housing for Abandoned Women

The impact of podoconiosis (Mossy Foot disease) is far wider than the health issue that presents such a visible need. Hundreds of women have been abandoned by their husbands as a result of their the stigma associated with this disease, leaving them with no means to live and support themselves and their children. Due to a generous donation from Koinonia Christian Fellowship, scores of homes have been built for those in need of housing. Read the story of Tarikwa Doda on our website and see photos.
