Podoconiosis, or "podo" for short, is a debilitating but preventable foot condition that affects 3 million Ethiopians and threatens the health of 35 million more. People with podo often face social stigma and isolation, and they experience swelling that makes walking and playing extremely painful. Your symbolic gift of $100 can provide five affected people in Ethiopia with custom-made shoes as they begin treatment.
