Jiggers are parasites that burrow into the bare feet of thousands of Ugandan children who often live without adequate footwear and misconceptions about the cause of jiggers. The result is infection, gangrene, paralysis, occasionally amputation, and even death.
A graphic, heartbreaking YouTube video exposed the truth about jiggers to Asher Collie. Her love of children and her desire to help others compelled her to start Sole Hope, a ministry whose mission is “Offering HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief.“
Sole Hope is restoring HOPE to children and adults both physically and spiritually.
