Bishop Pat Storey (Meath and Kildare) launched Good For The Sole at a special event held in Wilson’s Hospital School, Mullingar. The project is inspired by the desire to fight leprosy and the poverty that accompanies it. The launch was attended by clergy and representatives from every parish in the dioceses.
Something as simple as a pair of scandals can help protect families from poverty and despair. That is why the Church of Ireland dioceses of Meath and Kildare has launched its Good For The Sole Project to buy 10,000 pairs of sandals in Kamagere in Tamil Nadu, India. . The diocesan project, in partnership with The Leprosy Mission Ireland and Bishops’ Appeal, will raise €25,000 over this coming year.
