Shoes of Hope
Over 30 years ago, a young Nigerian boy received his first pair of shoes. It changed his life. Samaritans feet want to inspire hope through the gift of shoes, the act of washing feet, and encouragement to those who need it most.
People without shoes face dangers like laceration, fungus, and insect bites that can lead to infection, disease, and even death. Children with no shoes are often not allowed entrance to education in many countries and can find their way into slavery, or unsafe and inexcusable child labor environments. Since Samaritans feet founding in 2003, Samaritan’s Feet and its partners have distributed over 6,572,937.00 shoes.
