Thank you for your fantastic support, to visit our Shoe Appeal 2016 click here.
Our children’s faces were beaming with pride last year when we handed every child in our care a brand new pair of shoes!
But here’s the thing – because of our amazing supporters, our kids are thriving and that means their little feet are growing! Our wish is to once again give every child in our care a new pair of shoes.
Shoes are vital to protect our kids from serious diseases caught through cuts on their feet or by walking through polluted water. It’s so important for our kids to have shoes not just for their health but also for their dignity.
“I had no shoe before I came to Stand by Me and my feet became red, swollen and sore. I could not walk as quickly as I want and I’m always late for school but now I’m free to walk as I like and always on time for my school.” Milkiyas, Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia.
The need is always great as one pair of shoes does not last a lifetime – shoes really are a fundamental part of our care. So, will you join us in giving a new pair of shoes to 3,500 children this year?
