Mossy Foot UK

What we do

Mossy Foot (also known as Podoconiosis or "Podo") is a non-infectious disease causing massive swelling of the legs leading to pain, disability and social exclusion.

The purpose of Mossy Foot UK is to combat podo using a range of approaches that include communication, treatment and social projects.

At present our support is concentrated on a group of NGO-run schemes in Ethiopia, the country where there is probably the highest density of cases.

A great deal can be done to help: often simple, inexpensive measures have dramatic results.
