Samaritan's Feet South Africa is a non-profit organization that strives to spread hope by washing the feet of children in need, giving them a pair of new shoes, and encouraging them to work hard to follow their dreams. We've learned shoes can be life-changing, and sometimes, life-saving.
Who We Are
Shoes are required for prevention and protection. However, 3 billion people around the world do not have a proper pair of shoes, as they live on less than US $5.00 per day. Join Samaritan's Feet today and help us eliminate this epidemic and make the world a better place.
Over 30 years ago, on a hot summer afternoon in Lagos, Nigeria, a missionary from Wisconsin approached a young African boy and invited him to enter a contest where the prize was a pair of shoes. For this young boy, like so many others in Africa, the chance to own just one pair of shoes was beyond his wildest dreams that day. That boy’s name was Emmanuel Ohonme.
