Earlier this month, volunteers and members of The ASHE Foundation distributed 3,000 pairs of shoes to orphans in need in South Africa. We received the heart warming story and photos from Anita Campbell, the Director of Operations at The ASHE Foundation.
On August 6th thru August 13th, The ASHE Foundation traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa and distributed over 3000 pairs of shoes to orphaned children in the city of Limpopo and Soweto, South Africa. The 1611 pairs of shoes that were donated by Souls4Soles were distributed to orphaned children in the village of Ga-Dikgale, Limpopo.
CEO Dion Fearon, myself and International singer and songwriter Kenny Lattimore washed the feet and distributed shoes to orphaned children attending the drop in centers in the villages of Limpopo, South Africa. Over 2000 orphaned children who are being raised by their older siblings (usually under the age of 17) attend these drop in centers to receive food and counseling. The children have lost their parents from the devastating effects of AIDS.
We were able wash the feet of many of the children and place new shoes donated by Soles4Souls on their feet. They were thrilled to have their feet washed and receive a new pair of shoes. Thank you for your generous donation of shoes that helped us change the lives of many children two feet at a time.
