EUROPE/SPAIN - Recycling sneakers to fight poverty in Mozambique

Saturday, 13 May 2017


Madrid (Agenzia Fides) - #RUNCYCLE campaign has just been launched in Madrid. Promoted by the European High School in Madrid, with the collaboration of Runnics, the SEUR Foundation and Hello Media Group agency, the initiative will continue until June 20. The campaign's goal, according to the note sent to Fides, is to collect used sneakers to offer a new opportunity for use among families in Mozambique. It consists of dropping the shoes off at one of the collection points that SEUR has set up for the initiative in Spain and Portugal. Once they have been collected, they will be sent to the institutes of the European High School in Madrid, which will then send them to Mozambique. During the campaign children will dedicate themselves to writing letters to put in each of the shoe boxes destined for Africa. (AP) (Agenzia Fides, 13/5/2017)
