Mossy Foot is Podoconiosis, also known as nonfilarial elephantiasis and is a disease of the lymph vessels of the lower extremities that is caused by chronic exposure to irritant soils. The Mossy Foot Project came to the WAV to raise funds so that children can wear shoes and avoid this horrible disease. For more info visit: www.MossyFoot.com
Kids from Kids’ Arts traced their footprints and decorated them for the kids in Ethiopia who suffer from Mossy Foot disease. 8×10″ prints of the art can be purchased at Very Ventura gift shop on Main Street, downtown Ventura. 75% of sales goes to the Mossy Foot Project where special shoes are made for kids and adults. The prints are made by Kids4Kids. Visit www.MossyFoot.com for more information about the project.
