These poor children are taken over by jiggers! It breaks my heart to look at their innocent and impoverished faces and then see hands and legs engulfed by these horrible fleas. I am crying too. I pray for this family and all the other Kenyans, and Africans, consumed by this horrible flea. I pray for them to have strength as Rise Up Society and other groups work on their hands and feet and dig into their skin. I pray for us who have so much to understand that we don't need anything else and maybe give to these dear people who need basic things such as underwear and diapers. I pray for the gold hearts of Jim and the volunteers who work one on one with the jigger victims. And I believe the day will come when Africa will be rid of jiggers just like Central and South America. Bless us all.

+Monique Liddle I was crying so hard I only got through most of Part 1! These are the most afflicted CHILDREN I've ever seen! I'm so glad someone reached out to RUS so they could finally have some peace and maybe not cry through the night like I imagine. The mother and father look completely worn out and defeated. So sad...

I wrote a note to YouTube about the deletion of Jim Nduruchi's YouTube videos and channel. Does anyone have any information as to what happened? If not, does anyone have any hypotheses? Thanks so much. (I also will look at his Facebook page.)

+Monique Liddle. I think you are already helping by encouraging YouTube to reinstate Jim's Channel. Some people have been sending a fax and others have been calling. If you would LIKE to help others by suggesting a sample of what can be written, I think it's a fine idea. Often people WANT to do something, but are not confident in expressing themselves. You appear to have no problem in that, so I'd say "sure" go ahead. Do you have the contact information to give people? The phone number for YouTube and the FAX number?

Composting toilets have been around for years. Look at "tiny houses" on YouTube and you will see that many use the bucket method. You add it to your compost pile & a yr later you have rich soil. Look it up online.

Looks delisioso! Thanks so much for writing down the ingredients in the video description. I seem to miss some of the ingredients, especially the spices, from your recipe videos. I so enjoy your YouTube channel, your enthusiasm, and your love for Mother Earth! To quote what others have said about you: "You're a breath of fresh air" and I'll add: in a world polluted by negativity.

I am overjoyed John has a new home and yet I am very concerned about his leg. There must be someone in our connections who is a doctor and would take John's case. I agree with the other commenter that he could be healed, unless as +Mamite Geda writes that it is cancer (is that what you mean that his wound is cancerous?). I pray, John, that you have the strength and love to accept God's will. You have many people who are rooting for you and your hope to have a family. Know that you are loved and cared for by many, including our dear +Jim Nduruchi . Peace be with you.

Another person is jigger-free and learning how to keep his home clean of jiggers and its eggs. He seems motivated because he has faced other suffering in his life such as his hand and his 7 yr leg wound. Rise Up is growing larger by the people all the volunteers help and the Friends of Rise up. This experience is miraculous.!

I take back what I said in a previous comment regarding that the volunteer was not aggressive enough. This was an 11 yr old boy whose feet were covered in jiggers - so much that large portions of the flesh of his toes were gone and were replaced by jiggers &/or huge black scales. "Who are his parents?" kept screaming in my head. But they may be no more to blame because perhaps they are ignorant of the importance of hygiene &/or out selling their crops for food. My heart cries out for this boy and all the jigger victims, especially those with deformed or lost toes. I hope that we can continue to help the people struck by this horrible bug and help stop jiggers in Kenya and soon Africa.

+Monique Liddle I don't think they are ignorant of proper hygiene at all, they all have beautiful teeth which means they take care of that part of their bodies. I can't understand why they take good care of their teeth but ignore their feet because there is no way your feet get like that even with minimal attention to them.

Andrew looks so much better thanks to the Rise Up Society, the woman in this video (I can't remember her name), many others involved in his treatment including the volunteers who worked to rid a lot of jiggers, and also to Andrew himself who did not give up. To be this consumed by jiggers, he could have decided there was no hope and give up his life. He is a brave man to withstand the hours and days of the process to rid the jiggers to the point of where he is now. And I imagine he realizes he has a few more sessions to completely eradicate the jiggers. 
+Jim Nduruchi, please continue to film the other sessions of the jigger digging so we can see all the effort it takes for both the fighter and the volunteers to get a person where jiggers are but a memory. This helps us who watch to learn all that is involved in this process, and it helps us be invested in many ways: with prayers, financially, spreading the word of your work, and as long-term distant members of the Society. Thank you Jim and to the entire members of the  Society for the work you do with those who are ravaged by jiggers. God bless you all!

Many folks who live off the grid in Alaska use this method, too! 😊

Here is an alternative to that dusting spray that makes you wheeze. Sure it smells good, but you can make your own version and it won't harm your air, furniture, or anything good on this earth. Look up your own versions of chemical things you have in your home. You can DIY almost anything and it's cheaper than what you buy and safer. For this dusting spray, you can add lemon essential oil or orange or any combination you want.

I hope Jahnes hasn't given up hope. I am rooting for him and many people on YouTube and there with Rise Up have not given up on him. Bless him for enduring all his sufferings. I send you my love, Jahnes, and remember you are not alone. Whenever you need something go to Jim or a member of Rise Up and I'm sure they will help you as much as they can.

Now, a message to my fellow watchers: I do not know what are the pink bumps on the top of Jahnes' toes that have no skin covering. Does anyone know what they are? I saw a lady in a video from another African country suffering from jiggers that had the same thing except hers covered all over her toes and into her feet. I could not help but cry out for her. I know it is jigger related, but in what way? Thanks for your help!

 I agree to that statement to a degree. Mainly because the FDA should be separate entities. Food makes you sick, they give you pills, some pills make you sick unless you eat and some will make you sick if you eat certain foods. The FDA says they don't have enough funding to track and investigate all foods and all medicines so on the latter, they grandfather them. My God, if it works on a sheep since 1959 it should be okay for humans, or so they say. I won't take meds unless I investigate them thoroughly. Even then I am still injured by them. Recently I got nerve damage from an antibiotic. But, times as they are, it would be nice for them to put up or shut up.

Jim, I have seen many of your videos like this in which you show the squalor people live. Each time I am mortified how bad it gets.This time I just wanted to close my eyes and wish this extreme poverty all away. We can not do this, though. Each of us must help to alleviate these poorest of the poor places and help the people living there try to envision and then create a new life for themselves. Rise Up and all of us who believe in it, can do this for people who have no hope. We can teach this man and his children to Rise Up from where they are to something better.

Thank YOU for giving my videos likes! I'm not like Jim or Sandra Lee and my fan base in 2. Ha ha. I do this because I love it and it started as therapy to help my brain get better after a stroke. Thanks so very much for your support, we are going to be good friends. Thanks again sweetie. JJ
