Help Eradicate Jiggers and Restore Dignity to Victims' Lives

Kill the Jigger is an initiative of the Rise Up Society (RUS), a Welfare Society registered in Kenya by the Attorney General’s Office (Charity Number 36247). We are committed to eradicating the Jigger menace in Kenya. Our team has been on the ground for over five (5) years running (since 2011), reaching out and touching the lives of people in Western Kenya who are infected with Jiggers and suffering with extreme poverty. Love in action is our philosophy.
