Famine Relief in Sudan
Civil war, drought, and economic instability have led to a recently declared famine in South Sudan, where nearly 5 million people face extreme food shortages. Severe drought conditions across the region have also led to food crises in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Yemen. This fund will provide emergency funding to international and locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to address regional food crises.
Why we’re standing tall
Profits from every pair of heels sold go to support the education of women and girls living in poverty. However, given the severity of the situation in South Sudan we wanted to take proactive action in supporting local organisations on the ground to help the people of the region to build a sustainable future for themselves. Therefore, in response to this disaster we have supported the equivalent of 200 people with our good deed heels.
We flamin-go so well together
Shoes by Shaherazad contribution to this project will support recovery and relief efforts in the region. Initially, the fund will help immediate needs, such as medical care, food, clean water, agriculture, and transportation. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by vetted, local organizations. We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to build a stronger future.
