International Aid delivers JOY, HOPE, and LOVE to those in need…
Everyday we are faced with a decision to make. The decisions of what shoes are we going to wear. For some, it is a very important well thought out decision. After that decision is made, our minds begin to wonder are they comfortable and how will they feel on our feet as the day goes on. Now imagine living in a community where the type of shoes that you have on your feet is your last concern, if even a concern at all. Last month International Aid was able to travel to Liberia and distribute shoes and health products to an entire school community.
This trip to Liberia allowed us to collaborate with some of our partner organizations to help Change Lives. Thanks to the Crocs Cares organization, together with them, we were able to distribute hundreds of pairs of Crocs Shoes to a school community in Liberia. This distribution couldn’t have happened at a better time, as Liberia’s “rain season” is fast approaching. These shoes will benefit the lives of these school children in so many ways. From protection of their feet from the gravel surfaces, to comfort and practicality, these shoes will be used for a very long time.
Our trip didn’t stop there, thanks to other corporate partners we were also able to take and distribute some health products to the children. Gummy Vitamins, nutritional bars, and multiple other vitamins were handed out. The kids were all jumping and vying for these items like most kids would be in a candy store.
Of course we couldn’t let this opportunity pass by without sharing the Hope, Joy and Love found through Jesus Christ. Hundreds of t-shirts were distributed with those words on the front of them so that this community can continue to feel the Love of Christ.
Although we were only there for a few short days, the work continues to take place. It’s items like these, simple items that we take for granted on a daily basis, that have a huge impact on lives elsewhere. We’ve been blessed with amazing corporate partners, mission partners in the field, and faithful donors, who all play a major part in trips like this. We cant thank you enough for playing a part in Changing Lives around the world with International Aid.
