Grab a pair of your wackiest socks and sandals/shoes, go for a walk and donate £6 (the cost of a pair of protective sandals). The distance, when and how is entirely up to you; your exciting fashion combo will help raise awareness of the important footwear projects we offer for disability management.
One of the devastating side effects of leprosy and lymphatic filariasis is the damage it can cause to the feet, making walking extremely difficult if not impossible. As part of our disability management programme, we provide custom made protective footwear to help people walk comfortably and without fear of injury.
Each pair of sandals costs £6 to make, and last year we distributed more than 30,000 pairs. Help us to provide even more by taking part in a Socks & Sandals Walk today!
