Our 2017 Pack Action effort has come to an end! The process included selecting, sorting and packing shoes and other donations that we are collected from Germany and surrounding countries. Well over 1,000 pairs of shoes were donated and are currently on their way to Cameroon!
Since 2010, our team has worked hard to provide shoes to Cameroonians in need. For many, a pair of shoes can be life changing. Many still can go a lifetime without ever owning a pair of shoes, making it harder to perform daily activities like going to school, church, or work. Not only are these tasks more difficult, but they can be dangerous as well, with injuries and infections constantly posing risks. By distributing shoes, we hope to enhance the daily lives of Cameroonians and improve their standard of living.
This year, we were able to completely fill the shipping container with donations. It was packed to the brim with shoes, clothes, and other donations both big and small that will benefit some of our other projects in addition to this one. We were fortunate to have help from many wonderful, motivated volunteers. We will keep you updated with reports concerning distribution of the donations as developments happen.
We would like to extend our gratitude to all those who donated, volunteered, and supported us through this process. You can continue supporting us by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also find out other ways to get involved by visiting our website. We are excited and look forward to receiving more donations in the future so we can continue this effort!
