A Conversation with Manny Ohonme

Emmanuel “Manny” Ohonme has achieved national and international recognition as a philanthropist, social entrepreneur, businessman, speaker, and author. Jeremy Park sits down with Manny to discuss his life and what has inspired him. Manny shares his inspirational story of growing up in Nigeria and how the gift of a new pair of shoes ultimately changed his life. As the Founder, President and CEO of Samaritan's Feet, his organization works in 75 countries to provide new shoes to the 1.5 billion people worldwide who currently face foot-born infection and diseases. To date, the organization has distributed more than 6.5 million shoes; but the most heart-warming part is that volunteers wash the feet of the recipients and share love and prayers for a bright future.
