Who We Are
Not just a non-profit, nor just a humanitarian aid organization – but a community of more than 70,000 volunteers who have joined together to make a difference in the lives of children in need in every corner of the world. From a dream to the reality of over four million impoverished children and adults in more than 60 nations being served by having their feet washed, receiving a new pair of shoes, and hearing a message of hope.
Samaritan’s Feet and its team of global ambassadors have touched the lives of men, women, and children across the United States and around the world in an effort to help the nearly 300 million people who go without shoes each day and the more than a million who die (Dying Without Shoes) each year as a result. Through this simple act of humility and servant-leadership, our team members and volunteers are expressing love, compassion, and a message that brings hope.
If we want to change the world we must first start with the heart, and the heart of Samaritan’s Feet is hard at work in neighborhoods, schools, businesses, churches, gyms, villages, tents, and fields of this world. Lawyer or laborer, doctor or truck driver, student or senator – a first-person opportunity to change a life is at hand.
