It may to us in the West seem like such a simple thing.  Shoes for our children to go to school.  However in many parts of the world something we take for granted, Shoes, are in rare supply and many children amble to school bare footed or with extremely worn out footwear.

When you think of the Billions donated by the UK and other Western countries of which the UK is probably the highest giver, you wonder where all the money is going?  It will always remain the case that giving starts at home and local rather than National or International giving is the way forward.
