In March, KOFAVIV, MADRE’s local sister organization in Haiti, received more than 5,000 pairs of shoes through donations collected from Soles4Souls. KOFAVIV has started distributing shoes to women and their families who live in the displacement camps and impoverished neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince.
The women and families who received the shoes are members of the KOFAVIV network or have been identified by the KOFAVIV outreach workers. The new shoes will allow them to safely walk the long distances between their home, school and workplace, and go about their daily activities.
What’s more, women and girls who live in the tent cities will now be able to walk to the KOFAVIV Women’s Center, where they can receive food, counseling and other vital care.

Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
