Algerian Action Eid Appeal


The wonderful Sister Emma has launched her Algerian Action Eid Appeal.  Please visit her site and see if you can help.

Sister Emma says:

Last year gifts of toys, sweets and clothing were given to 300 children living in Algiers. This year it is planned that gifts will also be given to children in hospital and an orphanage.

Algerian Action currently has a list of 262 children from families that are helped by us on a regular basis but, this may of course increase by August. In addition there are 85 children in hospital and 100 children in an orphanage who we hope will receive Eid gifts from us this year.

But, this will only be possible with your help. We need donations of clothing, sweets, small toys, balloons- all the things that children love! Last year the paper airplanes, colouring pencils and bouncy balls were a real hit and the young girls loved the headbands and sparkly hairclips !

The plan is to give each child a goody bag of treats. Gifts will be distributed to children aged 0-16, so anything suitable for this age group would be greatly appreciated.
