Youth Against Poverty has just donated 200 pairs of Converse shoes to an orphanage for the blind in Tanzania. The orphanage was founded by the K2 Foundation and the orphans have never owned a pair of shoes. Also, many of the orphans are currently suffering from foot fungus, mainly because of the composition of the dirt and soil that causes the foot to swell. By wearing shoes, it will prevent the kids from having foot fungus and will forever change their lives. We just take for granted how important shoes are to us. Once you hear about how badly kids need shoes, you start to appreciate the shoes you wear everyday wherever you go.
