Shoe Aid is a social enterprise charity established to raise awareness and help the 300 million children worldwide who do not have the ability to obtain a pair of shoes, which are necessary for hygienic and health reasons, for work and school, due to the devastating ills of poverty. We believe that walking barefoot should be a choice, not a hardship.
Shoe Aid is working to establish itself as a leading global charity. Currently, in partnership with The National Police Aid Convoy, who deliver the shoes for us, the shoes that have been collected have benefitted and helped improve the lives of people in Malawi, Gambia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Russia, Albania, Pakistan, Ghana and Rwanda.
In the UK, we have supported Framework: Homeless and Vulnerable People Charity by giving hundreds of pairs of shoes to people who in many cases have been made homeless. NHS has also called for our help to help patients with severe trench foot. We have given an NHS hospital hundreds of slippers.
The Barefoot Walk & Barefoot Sunday
The Barefoot Walk is an annual event at Wollaton Park in Nottingham in the UK meant to raise awareness of Shoe-Aid and those people around the world that Shoe-Aid was set up to help. Barefoot Sunday is a new outreach effort by Shoe-Aid to work with sponsoring churches for shoe drives, fairs and events where congregants leave shoes at the altar on a given Sunday or in church-wide collections.
YOU CAN MAKE DONATIONS AT THE COMMUNITY CENTRE ANYTIME THE GATES ARE OPEN. THE COLLECTION BOX IS LOCATED INSIDE THE FROST DOOR.
