Sarbagita Sanur’s behemoth garbage dump is a huge mountain of discarded and decaying refuse where the Bali’s poorest spend their day's competing with vermin, trying scratch a meager living from what they salvage.

The idea of something as simple as a new pair of quality shoes is a distant dream for people who live in simple hovels atop piles of garbage.

Macbeth Footwear provided approximately one hundred and fifty pairs of brand new shoes after Solemen appealed for their support.

The donations were greeted by happy faces all around with every pair snapped up by the excited workers and their families. Children specifically needing new shoes for school were some of the first in line.
