The backpacks collected in the run-up to Christmas (2015) have been dispatched now to Mary’s meals where they will be forwarded to Malawi. Each pack contains a variety of items that will help the children with their studies, like pens, books, writing paper, pencils etc and other items like shoes, clothes, toiletries as well. About 160 packs were sent.
Our donors are from different churches/schools and its open to everybody- our oldest donor is a 106 year old lady called Kitty who crochet’s dolls which are placed in the girls backpacks and our youngest donor is 7 years old and brought in the pack he made himself. So a 99 year age difference !
