A Winnipeg community health centre is asking for help to stop the spread of an infection known as "trench foot."
Trench foot is an infection that first became known in the First World War. It is reportedly caused by having wet feet for extended periods of time.
Nine Circles Community Health Centre, which is located on Broadway, is asking for footwear and sock donations to help the local homeless community to avoid contracting the infection.
The presence of trench foot among Winnipeg’s homeless population was reported in December 2020.
