About Action on Podoconiosis and Intergrated Development Organization(APIDO)

Action On Podoconiosis and Integrated Development Organisation (APIDO)

APIDO is an Ethiopian NGO created solely for the relief of suffering from Podoconiosis through effective prevention and treatment programs.

APIDO’s first project in 2012 involved setting up six treatment sites in Health Centres across Wolayita, Gamo Gofa and Dawro. In this first year, we also set up our first shoe workshop – employing and training young locals to make custom, over-sized shoes for Podo patients.
