We were recently contacted by Container Ministries and NPO who asked us if we would be able to fill a container of shoes to send to the needy in South Africa.
It was a challenge that Viv was up for!!!
The container was organised by Container Ministries and NPO and was sponsored, so SFPE had to gather as many shoes as possible in a short amount of time.
An urgent request to all our shoe collectors in Sydney was sent out and on Sunday 23rd October the packing began.
A total of 9821 pairs of shoes were packed into the container and are now on their way to Durban South Africa. There they will go to 152 mission partners who will distribute them to the underprivileged, the sick, the orphans and the elderly.
A big thank you to all our shoe collectors and donors who helped to make this dream come to fruition!!!!
A big thank you also to our amazing volunteers who worked so hard all day packing the container.
We are looking forward in the future to hearing how this amazing shoe donation has helped to improve the lives of needy people in Durban and surrounds this Christmas.
