Having proper footwear is imperative for children living in this region. Chronic hookworm infection in children leads to impaired physical and intellectual development. The purpose and intent behind every B4K mission is to continue to prevent these chronic diseases from being contracted through shoe donations. As the cost of treatment is high and most infections are recurrent, the focus should be on prevention. Thanks to the efforts of Billy Lerner and his wife as well as Alexson Roy, improvements are made with every donation and every mission completed.
