Over the July 26th weekend, L.I.T.E. delivered over 300 leather sandals to market women in Old Road Market, Duport Road Market, and Dwazon Market. Each day Monrovia’s market women work 12 hour days with either no shoes, mixed-matched slippers, or very low quality slippers. Monrovia’s market women can walk miles to get to their market. We know how it feels to #WalkAMile in their shoes.
Because of L.I.T.E.’s partners, they were able to donate sandals, sandwiches, and sodas during the July 26th, Independence Day weekend. Joy, smiles, surprise, and gratitude were all the emotions the L.I.T.E. ground team saw in the faces of the market women.
