MY FIRST LITTLE SHOES

If you donate a pair of shoes, you are walking side by side with the children of rural Panama. 

My first little shoes is a program created to give children the footwear appropriate for walking in rocky terrain. Children have to walk many hours from their homes to their schools; up to 7 hours of walking in total every day. There are no paved streets, no sidewalks, and children often have to cross rivers.

 

Because of the long distances over rough terrain, hip pain, knee pain, and foot pain are all common symptoms these children endure. 

 

By providing these children with proper footwear we can improve their overall health, and help them avoid common occurrences such as cuts, sores, and snake bites.
