3rd container

In 2015, after the success of shipping and distributing two containers with over 24,000 pairs of shoes to the Dominican Republic we shipped our 3rd container with 10,284 pairs of gently-used shoes to Sierra Leone!

With the epidemic of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, we were made aware of a significant need for shoes in Sierra Leone. We were happy to partner with Stephen Fomba and the Tzu Chi Foundation to deliver and distribute the shoes to children and adults who needed them most.

The following schools and orphanages were included among our distribution:

St. Edward's Primary SchoolFourth Street, Freetown
