Our core focus is to serve impoverished children who don’t have shoes.
Samaritan’s Feet is a South African NPO that forms part of an international humanitarian organisation. Our approach is one of not merely giving shoes, but of giving hope. Because what these children hunger for more than anything else is hope.
When donating shoes to kids, we focus on connection. Because positive connection, both physical and emotional, makes an enormous impact on their lives. We spend time with them, washing and caring for their feet. We connect with their hearts, encouraging their hopes and dreams, and reminding them that their lives matter.
Ours is a happy and hope-filled effort. Aiming to protect and serve both the feet and hearts of the children. Ultimately, we’re about changing lives. Those of the kids, our volunteers and our partners.
Millions of children die every year from foot-borne diseases. Shoes are required for prevention and protection. Join Samaritan’s Feet today and help us eliminate this epidemic, while making the world a better place. Read the full report here >
Why the blue gloves?
Wearing gloves is a safety requirement from the Department of Health – to prevent transmission of disease and infection that can occur with skin-to-skin contact. If you’d like to find out more, have a look at the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) policy document.
