Donate shoes to Africa
Over 2 billion people suffer from soil-transmitted diseases & parasites (jiggers).
They live in areas that do not have adequate sanitation and proper hygiene. Because they do not have the right clothing, resources or health coverage; they often become sick & struggle. Kids suffer daily with pain, miss school and cannot help their families.
Many of these diseases and parasites get into the body because people simply don’t have shoes.
With your help we can prevent distressing and painful jigger infestations.
What can you do?
Please donate from as little as $250.00 so that we can set up a shoe making workshops in Africa. Not only will the shoes help us eradicate jigger-infestations; the surplus can be sold in order to generate much needed income in poor communities.
Should I actually send shoes?
In a word – Yes. Sending actual shoes to our headquater in Kenya might be very expensive (and there are only so many you can get in a suitcase). Instead, most donors prefer making donations and we will use it to ensure as many people are given footwear as possible.
