We did a shoe drop in Zambia and it was an amazing experience. With more teams on this rally than ever before – the shoe drop turned into 3 different activities for volunteers.
The first activity we did was paint the inside of a school, second being the shoes fitting exercise and finally I got my back into getting one of the classrooms a cement floor.
The look on the children’s face was incredible. Putting socks onto feet that have never had that and to see the kids running around in their new shoes was amazing. The Put Foot Foundation also sponsored a new borehole for the community so that they had access to water. Water is something I realize I have taken for granted and seeing a community where families walk for miles on end to get water and then needing to carry heavy bottles back home was very humbling.
