Common foot problems of the homeless

Homeless people needless to say, are on their feet in all weathers, rarely removing shoes and socks.  Problems commonly encountered include blisters, calluses, long and fungal infected nails, fungal skin infections and very often pitting keratolysis due to prolonged wet conditions as well as wounds.

Rain, in particular, affects homeless people long after it stops, as there is nowhere for them to dry shoes and socks, and thus wet footwear stays on resulting in macerated foot conditions.

We are appealing for donations of shoes (we can do repairs) & new socks.
