The mission of Billy for Kids, Inc. is to provide the basic needs of children all over the world in the form of shoes in order to foster a safer environment for them to live and play. Unprotected feet causes children worldwide to suffer from parasitic and other bacterial diseases borne in soil. The most prevalent being soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH): a parasitic infection spread by worms in tropical areas. Simply wearing adequate footwear would save a child’s life!
We make several trips throughout the year to areas around the world where these shoes can make a difference.
