It all started in 2018 with our very successful Pre-Christmas campaign Shoes 4 Venezuela. We collected new and gently-used shoes in London and distributed them to children in need during the Christmas season.
The response received from all of our supporters was overwhelmingly positive. In only one month we received a huge number of donations and in result, CHAMOS gave more than 1700 pairs of shoes to children in need during the Christmas season. Our allies, both in England and in Venezuela were key for the success of this campaign.
In 2019, we will continue to collect donations and send pairs of shoes to Venezuelan children. Wearing shoes is a basic human necessity, which has become a luxury for many in Venezuela. Additionally, we believe the use of shoes prevents children from many hazards and from many diseases to spread.
