The team will travel and serve in the northern Karamoja region, the most impoverished region in Uganda. This area is currently experiencing a food security crisis, so we will also partner with Feed The Hungry to provide food during our shoe distributions. The team will also enjoy a safari in Kidepo National Park.
The cost of the trip is $1,800 + Air. Samaritan’s Feet books all flights. We arrange ground transportation, meals, accommodations, exit taxes, trip insurance, shoe supplies, etc., which are included in the base cost. We make the process very easy! The only additional funds needed will be for souvenirs, COVID-19 tests, and your Visa. An application and $150 deposit are due to secure your spot. All payments can be made directly to Samaritan’s Feet.
Statements will be sent prior to each due date:
Application Submission: $150 deposit due
January 13: $900 due
February 13: $900 due
March 13: Remaining balance due

Samaritan’s Feet will follow and adhere to individual country requirements regarding COVID-19 testing and vaccination. Team members are responsible for paying for arrival and in-country COVID-19 tests which are not included in the base cost of the trip as they vary and can change. Samaritan’s Feet will help determine the most reliable, cost-effective options and will help coordinate the process. Team leaders and/or Samaritan’s Feet staff will not remain in-country with COVID-19 positive/quarantined team members and all COVID-19 and medical-related costs will be covered by the individual. Travel insurance is included in your trip cost and that policy does cover some of these expenses.
