Mossy Foot Clinic Work: Nov - Dec 2011

Mossy Foot Project finances 15 clinics around Soddo, Ethiopia, including a leather shoe making shop. In month of November and Decembers, we continue making progress in treatment and prevention of mossy foot disease. Here are a few stats to share:

Patients examined and treated: 5767, including 344 new patients
Leather shoes made and distributed: 728
Socks distributed in the month: 100

The project also includes elements of vocational training so that patients are able to learn means of making a living. Only only many have had their feet treated, but also have left the love and hope they never had before. In included in the attachment the story of Genet Gaga.

Thank each of your for your partnership in this ministry for the poorest of the poor. They are unless likely to thank you in person, but for sure you have your reward in heaven.

"The poor will see and be glad—
   you who seek God, may your hearts live!
The LORD hears the needy
   and does not despise his captive people. Psalm 69:32-33"
