Toby Tanser and Shoe4Africa Shine!
Congratulations Shoe4Africa! Kenya’s first Children’s Hospital is finally complete… so exciting!! After seven long years of tireless work, my good friend Toby Tanser has completed what he started out to do and I am so proud of him and what Shoe4Africa has given to the children of this beautiful, yet impoverished country.
The Shoe4Africa Children's Hospital is the first dedicated public children's hospital of its kind in East & Central Africa. Groundbreaking took place on December 31st, 2012, construction began on July 7th, 2013, and the foundation stone was set on August 21st, 2013. The hospital is a project of Shoe4Africa, a New York charity focused on creating better health and education outcomes focused in Eastern Africa. Donors have included notable names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Natalie Portman, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Mark Webber, and Anthony Edwards… and of course, Cynthia Gale New York!
We are so pleased to have supported Toby and the Shoe4Africa team. As Margaret Mead once said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
