>April 8, 2010 is One Day Without Shoes.
In some developing nations, children must walk for miles to school, clean water and to seek medical help.
Cuts and sores on feet can lead to serious infection.
Often children cannot attend school barefoot.
In Ethiopia, approximately one million people are suffering from Podoconiosis, a debilitating and disfiguring disease cause by walking barefoot in volcanic soil.
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.
ONE FOR ONE!
