December 2: How a pair of shoes can change a life

Leprosy can damage the feet, making walking impossible. But our special, protective shoes can change everything!

A pair of protective shoes:

  • Helps protect damaged feet and minimize limping with corrective insoles.
  • Eases the pressure on ulcerated, nerve-damaged, and fragile skin.
  • Prevents cuts, blisters, and infection.
  • Restores mobility so men, women, and children disabled by leprosy can walk, work, and take better care of themselves.

Just $15 provides a pair of protective shoes and other life-transforming help for someone whose feet have been permanently disabled by the crippling effects of leprosy. Learn how you can help support our efforts.

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
