About the Mossy Foot Project:
The Mossy Foot Project works on raising the level of awareness about podoconiosis in the Western world and focuses on its prevention, treatment, and eradication among those who are at risk in Ethiopia. Our work is presently centered in the town of Soddo, Wolaitta zone in southern Ethiopia.
We have been a registered NGO in Ethiopia since 2000, chartered with the mission to treat and eradicate podoconiosis, and a licensed 501c(3) organization in the US since 2006.
We provide medical treatment, education, vocational training and both social counseling and emotional support to individuals and their families who are afflicted with podoconiosis.
Mossy Foot Project takes a holistic approach to addressing this disease by providing care for whole person. Along with sharing physical care and education to reduce symptoms, we also provide vocational training to assist families and establish a means for livelihood, and offer income generating opportunities so they can start businesses to support themselves. In addition, we offer social counseling emotional support.
About the Mossy Foot Stories book:
We are also excited to announce our first book! Mossy Foot Stories is a collection of patient stories demonstrating how the treatment offered by Mossy Foot Project has brought men, women, and children from misery and ostracism to restoration and wholeness.
We’re sure you will enjoy this opportunity to read these detailed accounts of special individuals who have been touched through your partnership with us.
You can purchase the book at Amazon in either print or Kindle format.
The e-book will also be available for iTunes, Google books, and Kobo books on their sites.
This collection of stories reflects the legacy of Dr. Nathan Barlow and the continuing work of the Mossy Foot Project, which he founded. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to support the operational cost of continuing to serve mossy foot patients in Ethiopia.
Please share this book with others who you think might like to know more about what we do. And if the book touches your heart, consider writing a review on one of the sites where it is sold recommending it to others.
