In Africa and the Caribbean, shoes and flip-flops are essential items that lead to better health.
Without footwear, children are exposed to dangerous parasites and sharp objects that can cause serious wounds and infections.
Shoes are also often required for children to attend school, and those who cannot afford shoes will often be turned away from class in shame.
Your gift will provide not only better health, but dignity as well.
Please give a child a pair of shoes today.
