REPORT: THE SLIPPER PROJECT
Last autumn we asked you to help us put slippers on the feet of hundreds of children at Chinese orphanages. 'The Slipper Project' an international philanthropic project developed by The Daysh Foundation set out to donate hundreds self-knitted felted slippers to children’s orphanages in China.
We received great engagement from people around the world, and media outlets in both Norway and Australia reported on our project. A total of 241 pairs of slippers were sent to New Day Foster Home and their collabortative orphanges in January 2015, as well as a donation from our sponsor Scandinavian Fittings and Flanges AS (SFF).
A big thank you to Scandinavian Fittings and Flanges AS (SFF) who sponsored the Slipper Project. Their contribution has gone towards little Charlotte's heart surgery. Charlotte was found on a roadside, and when her parents could not be located she was taken to the local orphanage.She was diagnosed as having a heart disease and a GI defect. Charlotte is now in the care of New Day Foster home in Beijing and awaits her heart surgery.
