More information about Sole for Souls:
In developing countries, and regions that have experienced recent turmoil, the populations live without resources that we take for granted. Whether it be consistent electricity, hot or running water, or even clean drinking water that might be hard to find or far away. They live in houses without proper roofing, go without warm clothes, and many without shoes. Not all of these problems are immediately solvable, but Soles for Soles is an organization that strives to solve a part of it.
It’s easy to forget that these shoes perform important functions. Without shoes distances become unsafe to walk, without the support or protection from footwear ankles can be sprained, cuts can be exposed to bacteria and parasites.
Soles for Soles takes shoes (new and gently used) and brings them to underprivileged communities all over the world. Communities in Haiti, Tanzania, Costa Rica, and more, allowing these people to safely transport themselves to areas with safer resources, homes, and communities.
