Bitumi is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of jiggers through production of a locally sourced compound. Jiggers are small insects that burrow into human feet and cause short and long term damage to community health and quality of life. The team created a balm made from kasciro paka and mjaje roots, grinded into poweder and mixed with cocount oil that eradicated mal-effects from jiggers.
