Christmas 2015 Shoe Appeal

Our children’s faces were beaming with pride last year when we handed every child in our care a brand new pair of shoes!

This Christmas we would love to surprise each child with new shoes to replace the ones they have worn so faithfully all year round.

Shoes are vital to protect children from serious diseases caught through cuts on their feet or by walking through polluted water. The monsoon season poses an even greater risk in some countries. We recognise it is important for our children to have shoes not just for their health but also for their dignity - in many places children are not allowed to attend school if they do not have a pair of shoes.

You can make your donation go further by sharing a photo of your shoes on social with a message to encourage your friends to do the same “I just bought a pair of shoes for a rescued child by texting ‘SHOE01 £5’ to 70070 #standbymekids” 


The need is always great as one pair of shoes does not last a lifetime - shoes really are a fundamental part of our care.

My feet are beautiful. I feel I am a child of the king. Thank you
Aung Than Oo, aged 14

Will you join us in giving a new pair of shoes to 3,500 children this Christmas? For just £5, you can bring a smile to the faces of children like Aung and happy feet to all our kids around the world.


Stand by... almost there...
