If you are looking for some extra, last minute Christmas cards, the Aylesbury-based Karibuni Trust can help you. Their Christmas cards come in packs of six and are individually handmade by African refugees using fabrics and banana leaves, or are individually painted. The 20 year-old trust helps children from the streets and slums in Kenya, with food, clothing and education. One of their early charges has been appointed to join international consultancy KPMG, so their efforts are bearing fruit. You can help further by buying their cards.
They 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. For more information go to their website by clicking here.
