The Government of Kenya through the ministry of health has been urged to analyze rural disadvantaged institutions to ensure that outbreak of diseases is dealt with at its earlier stage .
Addressing the press during a free jigger treatment service offered by Agape Mission Ministry at Mitukuyi Primary in Bungoma County,the Bungoma church patron pastor Abel Barasa raised concern over high rate of jigger infection among primary school students especially in Mt. Elgon ,Webuye West and Webuye East constituencies in Bungoma county stating that it is an alarming issue that needs to be addressed earnestly.
Pastor Abel said that his efforts to reach a larger number of children living with jiggers has been paralyzed by constraints of funds. In Mitukuyi primary ,he administered free jiggers and ring worm medication to more than 150 individuals amongst them primary students and old age fellows.
The event was also graced by Madam Linda Lucy a partner from aNorwegian N.G.O who promised to partner with Agape mission hospital to ensure that they at least try to give solace to the young generation. Madam Linda has also promised to support the widows in Mitukuyi village to atleast upgrade their lives through small scale business.
Agape mission ministry has been on forefront supporting the less fortunate across Kenya and it has hit the headline by treating people living with jiggers all around.
