Rhonda Willoughby on Food for the Sole

Jan 08, 2017, 09:10 AM

RhonDa Willoughby was in studio with Brenda Drumm to talk about 'Food for the Sole' - the cookbook with a difference!

Leprosy still exists in some parts of the world and particularly in India.

For the last two years we have been running our ‘Good for the Sole’ project in partnership with Leprosy Mission. We have raised €25,000 to buy sandals, made out of recycled tyres. Sandals help protect the feet of those who suffer from leprosy in India. We are moving into the second phase of our project - to raise money for foot surgery.

For some people the sandals come too late and their feet are already badly damaged. Foot surgery costs €50, which includes medical care, hospital stay and aftercare. This surgery gives a leprosy sufferer a new lease of life, and again, means that they can work and earn a living. 5 cookbooks will provide one life changing operation. Extend your recipe bank and change someone’s life!

Copies are €10 / £10 + post & package.
