shoes for people with leprosy


$19 USD

When someone is cured of the bacterial infection that causes leprosy, the nerve damage they have suffered may not be reversed. This means they can easily injure themselves, causing the deformed feet and lost fingers associated with the disease. INF gives training and basic equipment that helps people stop the damage. A pair of custom-made protective shoes can help someone to work, care for their family and carry out the normal activities of daily living without fear of their insensitive feet becoming injured or infected. These special shoes can help to ensure that the recipient remains a productive member of the community.
