In today’s podcast episode, I interview Ashley Redburn, Stateside Operations Director for Sole Hope. In the episode you will learn about a ministry that meets a physical need of Ugandans. The jigger parasite burrows into its hosts feet causing pain, and if untreated, deformity.
Even though the medical procedure to remove the jiggers is relatively simple, the social stigma about anyone who has jiggers creates a much larger problem. The founders of Sole Hope, Dru and Asher Collie, began Sole Hope after Asher came across a YouTube video about how jiggers entered the feet of children in Uganda and the devastating impact it had on these children.
