Joy Murphy: November 2015
With Christmas just around the corner, thoughts are starting to turn to cards and presents. Karibuni has some gift ideas to help you in your Christmas preparations.
Our Christmas cards come in packs of 6 and are individually handmade by African refugees using fabrics and banana leaves, or are individually hand-painted.
We also have unique Christmas tree decorations made by the refugees from banana leaf. There are angels with trumpets, harps or stars, and 'bike taxis' carrying luggage, one passenger or a mother and baby.
We are once again giving you the opportunity to buy our popular Charity Gifts to give as presents to your family and friends. Gifts range from mosquito nets to laptops — all will be purchased in Kenya and given to children and their families in the projects. You will receive a card for your recipient telling them about the donation you have made on their behalf — a perfect alternative gift this Christmas!
For more information, speak to Joy Murphy on 01296 428319 or visit www.karibuni.org.uk for the full range of products and online shop.
