Let's your foot lest / Recycling shoes

Shoes are one of requisites to people, however, sufferers of disaster or war cannot put on shoes because of shortage in supply. Thus, they are easy to be infected some diseases through the sole of their feet. To prevent them from the diseases, we invented a way to provide them shoes for free and easily. It is to recycle bags used to keep relief grains, which are sent from around the world to help the sufferers. After they receive the goods, the bags are wasted, but they can become useful shoes by adding a rubber plank to the bottom of the bag. As a result, the sufferers can escape from the diseases by wearing the shoes.
