March 2019. Thanks to all of your support, in the last 5 years, we have found new feet for over 1,000,000 pairs of preloved children’s shoes in 38 countries around the world. Our doors reopen next month:
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.
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.
