Painful foot problems affecting homeless and other disadvantaged persons are accentuated as individuals are commonly forced to walk long distances upon poor shoes. Accordingly Footscape is collating new and second-hand shoes for distribution to recipients of care at our project affiliate organisations:
An example of a client helped is a homeless man presenting with shoes (below left) which were too small for his feet. The Podiatrist was able to provide some newly washed, correctly fitting runners and new socks. As walking is his only mode of transport his mobility will be improved.
