Group donates over 200 shoes to shoeless children, prison inmates in Dutsinma
Not fewer than 200 shoeless children and prisoners were yesterday given free shoes by a group of young humanitarians.
The group “SHOE FOR A CHILD INITIATIVE” led by Comrade Yusuf Umar Dutsin-ma narrated that, it has always been a deep seated burden seeing children walk to school and back bare footed in the scorching sun and the muddy result of an intense rainfall. Hence they deem it fit to step up and take action by campaigning and getting shoe donations from people across the country after which they gave out to the Needy.
The #ShoeForAChild initiative as said by the Comrade is to reduce the burden of children falling sick as a result of this exposure especially in the rainy season to diseases like leptospirosis among others.
The Phase I of the mega donation was also extended to Prison Inmates in Dutsin-Ma satellite prison as the group learnt that, some inmates lives without shoe.
Lastly, Comrade Yusuf urged people to always think of a way to help their own community. Saying that, Government cannot do anything for us.
