Shoes… We take them for granted, but in many parts of the world they are considered a luxury, especially for children. In many developing countries, streets are filled with debris, and children walking without shoes are exposed to parasites like hookworm, infected cuts, or other health problems. This affects approximately 1 billion people worldwide. The disease in these countries indirectly causes the death of many children by increasing their exposure to infections that could normally be tolerated. This serious health issue can easily be prevented by wearing adequate shoes in order to prevent infestation from small cuts.The Walk In My Shoes global project is non-profit organization with the mission to provide shoes to children in developing countries. We brought the Walk In My Shoes mission to our campus. We educated individuals about poverty in other countries and organized shoe drives to support Walk in My Shoes.
