Shoes that Grow
Malawi Orphan Care Project, Inc. has started a fundraising project to provide shoes for our orphans in Malawi. They are designed to last for years and will provide protection from hazards and infections that are present with bare feet.
The Shoe That Grows has 5 times the impact of an ordinary shoe because it expands five sizes and lasts for years. This adjustable shoe is easy to clean and easy to use, has a compressed rubber sole, antibacterial synthetic upper, high-grade Velcro straps, and no mechanical parts or gears to break. The shoes are available in five sizes.
Without shoes, children are especially vulnerable to diseases and parasites that can cause illness and even death. Children who get sick miss school, can’t help their families, and suffer needlessly. And since children’s feet grow so quickly, they often outgrow donated shoes within a year, leaving them once again exposed to illness and disease.
The shoes are manufactured in Kenya and we hope to have the shipment arrive so that our July mission team can help with the distribution. Each pair of shoes costs $20.
Please help us give children in Malawi shoes that will grow with them and will keep them healthier. If you donate by check, please write “shoes” on the memo line. If you donate through our website, please denote “shoes” in the donation. Click here to learn more about how to donate.
