A pair of school shoes

One pair of school shoes for a child at Uzima.  Every year we supply the children with school shoes that help prevent them getting 'jiggers' The monies donated will be used for a pair of shoes which will be bought during our visit for the children at Uzima.  We put shoes as a high priority because the children often walk a long way to school but more crucially shoes help prevent the children getting 'jiggers'.  Jiggers are a flea that lays its eggs in human's feet and the eggs then hatch and are very painful and likely to get infected.  Since buying shoes at Uzima finding jiggers in the children's feet has dropped from 50% to virtually nothing.
