004 Jesus in Kiryandongo



This diocese has a companion relationship with an Anglican diocese in South Sudan, in the rural farming area of Lui. The two plus years of civil war have left most of the village burned and occupied. Lui residents live in diaspora in the bush, in refugee camps in Juba, Kenya, and many have escaped to the Kiryandongo Refugee Camp in Uganda. A visit to that camp by the bishops of Missouri and Lui amplified a horrible problem–sand fleas called jiggers that live in the ground. They burrow into anything in contact with the ground, like bare feet, lay eggs which hatch creating ulcers that then need to be cut out. Without antibiotic or anesthetic. A very simple solution is wearing closed toe shoes and washing with soap. Simple unless you live in a refugee camp with the resources you escaped with on your back.

Today’s guest is Deb Goldfeder, chair of the companion diocese committee in Missouri, who organized a diocese-wide effort to collect shoes and money for shoes that has just been sent to Kiryandongo. Today’s host is Dan Handschy, rector of Advent Church in Crestwood, and who has also made trips to Lui, South Sudan.
