Request for Children's Shoes in Afghanistan

Firepower Forward - The Cutting Edge of Freedom

Found this request:

A Plea for Help

We need children's shoes!!!

As 1LT Burt was walking through medical facility here on the FOB, she saw one of the local Afghani children who are all too often treated here when their needs exceed what can be provided at the community hospital. The young lad of 8 or 9 was receiveing excellent treatment for his injuries, but what caught her attention was that he had outgrown his shoes and new shoes either could not be afforded or were not available. She knew this because the toes of his shoes had been cut off to allow his own toes to stick out.

If you are able to help go and find out the address.
