Orphans in South Africa Receive Shoes

The ASHE Foundation, a partner of Soles4Souls, is an organization committed to changing the lives of the millions of children in African nations who have been orphaned by the devastating effects caused by HIV/AIDS.

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.

Greetings Soles4Souls,

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.

These are generally short phrase loans that do
offer you meet your fiscal matters inside a preferred specific time period.
Considering time limitations these loans are especially
made above an obligation no cost platform.
As such, these are kept fully 100 % free from credential checksums. Challenges such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even IVAs are not viewed as right here. Additional, there are also no collaterals connected with these loans. There is minimal paper function required on the part of borrower. There are also no hidden or added documentation or faxing needed right here. Applying for these loans is also rather convenient. People simply demand filling an web based type and when this gets authorized cash is received inside 24 hours time frame. These loans are frequently provided beneath handy terms and circumstances. The general standard applicant criteria here is that they should really be a UK resident and of 18 years of age.
