Hands of Action International of Bemidji,Mn is parterning with Sole Hope to provide much needed shoes for as many of the kids in our school as possible.
They have agreed to sell us the shoes at $10 per pair and the shoes are made in Uganda,which means we are ethically supporting the local economy by not bringing in shoes made outside of Uganda:)
This is something we are PASSIONATE about! Shoes are not a luxury, as Jiggers(sand fleas) lay eggs in the kids feet and these nasty, life sucking maggot like babies hatch and lay more eggs until the kids can barely walk. One of our mission team members sadly had the experience of getting just one of these jiggers a month ago, and it was painful!! The jiggers eventually lead to infection and can lead to death if not treated. The only prevention??? SHOES!!
Join us and Sole Hope as we protect these little feet and bless the kids with shoes:)
P.S. In Bemidji? Watch for our Sole Hope shoe cutting parties coming up this Spring and Summer! Come cut out the top fabric of these shoes with us by upcycling discarded denin/jeans.
