Refugee Aid Distribution Point
In August 2016 Sal's Shoes found new feet today amongst young Syrian refugees in Lebanon with https://www.facebook.com/HighWycombeHelpingOthers/ & https://www.facebook.com/onenationUK/
Thanks to a generous donation from https://www.facebook.com/LittleChampsports/ Sal's Shoes were also able to send new toys to the younger kids at the distribution point.
In August 2016 in the municipality of Rachaya in Lebanon, the children of 510 Syrian and 120 Lebanese families received a pair of Sal's Shoes
Salam LADC volunteers together with the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs set up a system for the distributions, organised free warehouse space and listed families in need. 100 families an hour were processed through the system and given aid items during a period of 5 hours.
Sal's Shoes were transported by https://www.facebook.com/HighWycombeHelpingOthers/ and this consignment was funded by https://www.facebook.com/onenationUK/
Thanks to http://www.npac.org.uk; in October 2017, 12,362 pairs of Sal's Shoes donated by pupils at schools in **Northern Ireland** as part of our Toe to Toe initiative arrived in Al Qoubaiyat in North Lebanon. Lebanon is a small country with 4.5 million citizens. The influx of an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees has added another 30% to its population, giving it the highest ratio of refugees per capita in the world. Almost one in every three people in Lebanon has now escaped from Syria [http://reliefweb.int/…/relief…/files/resources/VASyR2016.pdf Oct 2016]. Feet in shoes are protected feet; feet protected from injury and infection. Your Sal's Shoes will shortly be walking again amongst young Syrian refugees in Lebanon thanks to http://www.rahmarelief.org.
Thanks to http://www.npac.org.uk, in November 2017 Sal's Shoes, donated in Northern Ireland at the end of June as part of our Toe to Toe initiative, went back to school on the feet of young Syrian refugees at Wadi Akar School in North Lebanon.
