Talk about the Weather ltd are delighted to have been able to help Water for Africa with a large donation of Spats ankle boots for women working in agriculture and horticultural projects in remote and deprived villages. “Footwear is such an important and forgotten commodity in Africa” says Sheryl Greentree, CEO and Co-Founder of Water for Africa. “Women are walking miles every day to not only collect water, they are working for hours on end in the fields to grow vital food for their families and their communities. We forget that women’s feet not only need protection, but in the rainy seasons, their traditional footwear is poor and inadequate. The wonderful donation of Spats will make a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of women. We are truly delighted for our beneficiaries. They are beautiful and very practical boots from an ethical company”.
The collaboration was facilitated by InKindDirect.
