Stories from the Field

The impact of Samaritan’s Feet goes far beyond the shoes. We love sharing stories of how a pair of shoes encourages hope: Health, Opportunities, Peace, and Education.

From Desolation to Hope

It was a slow, gradual change. The lush green landscape with large fruit trees and farms had been replaced with a vast orange desert-like land. Trees became sparse, a river was completely dry, and there were no signs of the once lush green landscape. It was vast, open, and dry.

Rebuilding Hope After the Flood

After a destructive flood in Knott County, Kentucky, the community faced loss and trauma. Despite challenges, they’ve supported each other, most recently providing nearly 400 students with new shoes.

Meet Zaiden

Meet Zaiden. He’s your typical 10-year-old boy. He loves soccer. He loves showing off the various medals he’s won. And he loves getting every last drop of ice cream out of his bowl. But on October 20, something extraordinary happened to Zaiden and his family.

Serving in India

A group of women in bright orange, yellow, and red saris sang a beautiful song that likened the team’s arrival to their village to flowers blooming. Everywhere the team went, there was a sense of celebration, a sense of honor and openness.

Celebrating Students and Their Dreams

Several partners from throughout the city of Charlotte joined together to encourage elementary and middle school students. It turned out to be a very special day, so check it out below.

The Day We Danced in the Dominican Republic

A group of students from Clemson University had a very special spring break. They’ve been in class learning about Servant Leadership, so joined Samaritan’s Feet to serve in the Dominican Republic for a week.
