>One Day Without Shoes 2010

>April 8, 2010 is One Day Without Shoes.

Fact #1
In some developing nations, children must walk for miles to school, clean water and to seek medical help.

Fact #2
Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.

Fact #3
Often children cannot attend school barefoot.

Fact #4
In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease cause by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.

Fact #5
Podoconiosis is 100% preventable by wearing shoes and basic foot hygiene.

Go the day, part of the day or even a few minutes, barefoot, to experience life without shoes first hand and to help spread awareness of the impact a simple pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.
