There are 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity. This makes them extremely vulnerable to infection by parasites, such as hookworm; while injuries to the feet and ankles can lead to ulcers and other conditions which are almost always left untreated. Without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school.
Sal's Shoes. Crossing continents to make sure that your used, loved (and barely worn) outgrown children's shoes are delivered straight from you to those in need.
Places and spaces that are always collecting shoes for Sal. Drop in any time of year, after spring cleaning or new term clear out.
It's estimated that nearly 300 million people around the world can't afford shoes. Our donations go to those in the most desperate and life impacting need.
