Early in June 2020, we kicked off the Crochet Kenya August donation project dubbed #CKAugustDonation drive. We opened up our August donation commitment to all crafters in Kenya who would be interested to join our initiative. We committed to make blankets, toys, preemie wear, hats and scarves which we planned to donate in the month of August to several hospices, homes and hospitals.
We collected more than 82 blankets, 148 hats, 32 scarves, 57 preemie outfits for the donations. Our first donation in August was at Nairobi Hospice on 6th August. Our founder, Elizabeth Muema had the privilege of visiting meeting Mrs. Ruth Were, the Chief Executive, and Winnie their PR officer. We donated 22 blankets, 15 scarves and 30 hats.
The next donation was on 9th August at the Nyumba ya Wazee this weekend, Kisumu Hospice next week and Faraja Cancer Care center towards the end of the month. If you have any blankets or scarves you wish to donate through us kindly contact me Liz Museo +254721715636 via WhatsApp!.
