Many children in developing countries grow up without any footwear. Some walk miles to school, some work and do chores, some even become ill or injured as a result. Toms have seen firsthand the hardship that many children suffer without shoes.
Contract Diseases – Lack of footwear in developing countries can lead to contraction of soil-related diseases. Pathogens can penetrate the skin through bare feet causing sickness, long-term illness and even deaths. Toms have supplied many children already with adequate footwear to help prevent these diseases and their harmful effects.
Suffer Injuries – Injuries sustained in developing countries can be devastating. Often miles from medical aid, injured children can become seriously wounded and suffer from infections in their cuts. Toms shoes can provide protection against injuries that may seem small but can have terrible impact on a child’s life.
Banned from School – Many schools insist that children have shoes in order to attend. Without them, children may fail to receive an education and miss out on the opportunities they are desperate to pursue.
