Last year I traveled with Young Living Foundation to Uganda, to meet with those organizations that are YLF partners.
SoleHope.org is one of our partners that completely stole my heart.
Kids there get bites from female sand fleas, called jiggers, that burrow in their feet, cause sores and blisters which make it impossible for kids to play and even walk.
Sole Hope travels to schools, inspects feet, removes jiggers and gives the kids a pair of denim shoes. They give out over 300 pairs of shoes a week.
Would you like to cut denim jeans that would become a shoe? It takes about a hour of your time, $10 donation and voila denim patterns are off to Uganda where the shoes are assembled.
The day I worked with SoleHope.Org we saw 125 kids and only 3 did not have jiggers....a female sand flea that burrows in the feet \, lays eggs and causes inability for the child to walk? That day 125 pairs of shoes were given out. Over 300 pairs of shoes a week are given. We need to make more shoes. Bring your scissors. Jeans will be provided.
Please join me. I would love to tell you so much more.
