Appeal for unwanted shoes! Can you help?
Appeal for collection of unwanted shoes for Uganda
Uganda are looking for donations of all sorts of USED and UNWANTED SHOES from individuals, schools, families and organisations. These will be directly distributed to prisoners, refugees in displaced peoples’ camps especially from South Sudan and school children who walk barefoot to school daily in the tropical sunshine. Focus is on rural schools in Masaka Diocese of southern Uganda.
Uganda at the moment hosts over 100,000 displaced peoples in refugee camps and 85% of school children in rural areas walk barefoot.
We will much appreciate if we are put in touch with any good willed/interested individuals from any background and from any part of the UK; who can help make the campaign a success.
FREE COLLECTION of the donated items has been guaranteed beginning with the LAST WEEK OF MARCH.
