Abel is a 13-year-old who lives in the rural community of Chiara. There are 250 inhabitants there, engaged in raising sheep, growing and harvesting potatoes, coffee, and bananas. The nearby school and hospital are approximately 10 miles away, which he has to walk daily without real shoes, in just sandals that are falling apart. He begins classes at 8am but has to leave home at 6am to get there on time. Without proper shoes getting an education and being able to work is extremely painful and difficult for him. Abel is not alone, many children in Bolivia suffer from similar plights.
You can help. You can help change this. Just $1.00 covers the cost of a pair of brand new shoes for a child in Bolivia.
Cree & Suena (Believe & Dream) is a Bolivian nonprofit charity with volunteers based in La Paz and Seattle. Its mission is to spread joy and bring smiles to the faces of Bolivian children in rural areas by distributing shoes, toys, gifts, and school supplies to children whose families cannot afford them.
