Shoes For Africa

Over 2 billion people suffer from soil-transmitted diseases & parasites (jiggers).

They live in areas that do not have adequate sanitation and proper hygiene. Because they do not have the right clothing, resources or health coverage; they often become sick & struggle. Kids suffer daily with pain, miss school and cannot help their families.

Many of these diseases and parasites get into the body because people simply don’t have shoes.

With your help we can prevent distressing and painful jigger infestations like the ones pictured in the BBC South Today feature below.

What can you do?

Please donate from as little as £2.00 so that we can set up a shoe making workshop in Kenya. Not only will the shoes help us eradicate jigger-infestations; the surplus can be sold in order to generate much needed income in poor communities.

Should I actually send shoes?

In a word – No. Sending actual shoes to Western Kenya is very expensive (and there are only so many you can get in a suitcase). Instead please do make a donation and we will use it to ensure as many people are given footwear as possible.
