Gearing up for boots distribution in Brussels
Today in Calais, it was cold, wet and windy. I wore four layers and was still soaked to the skin by the constant heavy rain. The one thing that cheered me up was seeing people wearing the walking boots we had previously given out.
I know how much walking refugees do every day, and I know that the ones wearing poor footwear would have been sodden today. Living outside, there is no way to get wet stuff dry, and walking in wet trainers or leather is no joke. Neither is the foot rot that can follow.
Seeing these boots on people’s feet means we made a real difference, at least once.
We are now saving up to carry out a boot distribution in Brussels, where 700 people sleep outside in the park. If you can help, please click here.
